VIDEO// Angel Olsen: Some Things Cosmic

Angel Olsen sings like no-one else. Her voice quivers with emotion like she's about to cry, and it honesty brings a tear to my eye. Her performance is perfect, from that wry mid-track smile to her beautiful middle-distance stare. The audience at her feet is quiet, the final shuddering notes leaving her lips and floating up into the warm summer air. This moment is strange and full and fleeting.
