Reasons To Be Cheerful
Album of the week
Angel Olsen – Whole New World
The promised solo album drawn from the same songs and well as last year’s 2019 album All Mirrors.
Whole New Mess was recorded in The Unknown, an isolated old church that was converted into a studio by Mount Eerie’s Phil Elverum and producer Nicholas Wilbur in the small town of Anacortes in Washington.
It shares some of the same ideas and lyrics (nine of the 11 songs crossover), though reworked in and titled in different ways and with an alternative tracklist.
It’s not merely the solo demos that Olsen promised last year but something else that’s drawn from the same book of songs. Producer Michael Harris recorded the album with Olsen in The Unknown and it’s mostly just Olsen and her guitar.
