Here’s a rundown of new releases on DSPs and physical releases in record shops this week.
Angel Olsen – Big Time
“Big Time is an album about the expansive power of new love, written during the time Olsen was coming out as queer, and having her first experience of queer love and heartbreak.”
The background to this album is something. Olsen came out to her parents at the age of 34. Within a short time, both of them had died, and the album was recorded three weeks after her mother passed.
Olsen plays Vicar Street, Dublin on October 24th.
