    Angel Olsen

    Recently signed to Jagjaguwar, Angel Olsen is another reincarnation of the wave of beautifully sad lady-folk that has hit the mainstream this year. Channeling Joni Mitchell, Patsy Cline and even Loreena McKennitt at times, the Chicago by way of Missouri singer/songwriter is absolutely captivating live. It takes an enormous amount of karma to make sad, plaintive ballads mesmerizing, but Olsen pulls it off.
