Hi-Five, the third song on Angel Olsen’s second album, Burn Your Fire for No Witness, has got to be one of the most cheerful songs ever written about being lonely. A twangy electric folk tune that begins with an invocation of its muse, Hank Williams, the song is all stomp-and-rollick until it stops to catch its breath for a moment in the bridge. Are you lonely too? Olsen warbles. Enemy" hangs like a spiderweb in the album's quietest corridor-an intricate wisp of a song that she patiently spins into something hallowed and heartbreaking. Then there’s White Fire, a sparse, nearly seven-minute incantation that sounds like a lost Songs of Leonard Cohen cut but gradually accumulates an atmosphere of its own. When Olsen switches into ballad mode, she fares best with hushed, minimal arrangements.
When Angel Olsen's proper debut, Half Way Home, materialized in 2012, its spare indie folk compositions and subtle references to the greats of '50s country congealed into a restless whole.
Album Burn Your Fire for No Witness. Everything is tragic, it all just falls apart But when I look into your eyes, it pieces up my heart If I only had an answer to put it all to bed I wish sometimes I could take back every word I've said. I walk back in the night alone, got caught up in my song Forgot where I was sleeping, none of the lights were on I heard my mother thinking me right back into my birth I laughed so loud inside myself, it all began to hurt

Half Way Home, the 2012 album with which Angel Olsen built her name, was a great album, but its greatness was the sort that you can only really admire from a distance. Whether purposefully or as a byproduct of the way it was recorded, Half Way Home sounded like the sort of record you might dig up at a deep-south flea market. Olsen’s voice was a spectral operatic trill, and it danced above her skeletal acoustic folk and old-timey country songs like a flame flickering over a match’s head.
