Angel Olsen Signs To Jagjaguwar; Kicks Off Headline Tour This Week

292

 

Angel Olsen has a fresh edge to her sound, a warm and wonderful range so rarely found, and an otherworldly skill and charm. In a live setting and on record, she wholly captivates, creating an emotional stew with her robust voice up front, bold and engaging, aching to be heard. Following an excellent six months since the release of Half Way Home where fans and media alike have begun to recognize her very special presence, we are excited to announce Angel has signed to Jagjaguwar, a fitting home comprised of a team that has been a true fan of Angel’s elegance and extraordinariness since the earliest days of her career. She joins a roster of artists including Bon Iver, Sharon Van Etten, Foxygen, Dinosaur Jr. and Unknown Mortal Orchestra.

 

Speaking of those early days, Angel’s debut solo album, Strange Cactiis finally available again in a limited 2nd edition pressing on Bathetic. And, Bathetic will also be releasing Half Way Home on CD for the first timecome May 14th.

This week kicks off Ms. Olsen’s first tour of the west coast! Catch Angel (guitar) and her band — Danah Olivetree (cello), Stewart Bronaugh (bass) and Joshua Jaeger (drums) – headline intimate settings now, because if Angel’s future looks as bright as we believe it will be, she won’t be playing in rooms of this size for long! Following the west coast tour, Angel will head overseas to Ireland and the UK and then will return stateside to play a run of shows opening for Kurt Vile, plus her own headlining show at Glasslands in NY and the Pitchfork Music Festival in July.

“Ms. Olsen understands the power of holding back, and feeding out extravagance in small portions. People stopped buying drinks; the bartenders put their elbows on the counter, engrossed. It was remarkable. . . Ms. Olsen has found her sound – her voice, alone and untreated and slow, conjoined with the specific resonance of her guitar – and she’s able to replicate a private discovery in front of a crowd. That’s a lot.” – The New York Times

“11 tracks of rough-hewn folk, shimmering and ribboned with dirt-packed veins, sung by a voice that curls and dips and dissolves like a black smoke plume.”

– Pitchfork [2012 Albums of the Year: Honorable Mention]

“Songs on [Half Way Home] had much in common with the passions and range of a singer like Roy Orbison. The common thread between that powerful singer-songwriter and hit-maker from Texas and this more delicate Midwesterner is that they both write from the heart and sing with a range that may make you stop what you’re doing and drop your jaw a bit.” – NPR Music

 

“On ‘Half Way Home,’ she waltzes through 11 gems that highlight a minimalist guitarist with a gentle touch and a voice whose range is as wide as it is controlled.” – Los Angeles Times

 

“It’s not just Angel Olsen’s range that makes her voice so unforgettable; it’s the surprise turns she’s learned to produce by manipulating it.” – The FADER

Pickathon 2013 Announce Dates and Lineup! Aug. 2 – Aug. 4 In Happy Valley, OR

Pickathon is turning 15 and, like a fine wine, it just keeps getting better! Happening Friday, August 2nd – Sunday, August 4th at Pendarvis Farm in Happy Valley, OR (a mere 15 minutes from downtown Portland), this year promises to be the best ever. Since day one, the idea behind Pickathon has always been pretty simple: what does it take to be the best weekend festival of the year for music lovers? This question has driven Pickathon to highly refine an experience that has few peers.

Innovation has always been at the center of this process and through the years many important elements have come together; collaborating widely on yearly diverse lineups that are built on the idea of great music being the sole criteria; refining six unique performance venues designed to create juxtaposing alternate realities; trusting important decisions can be discussed and made with our online community such as maintaining a low crowd density; becoming the only large music festival to eliminate plastic and minimize single use items; recruiting the finest food and drink purveyors in the land; focusing constantly on eliminating “normal” festival hassles, and the list goes on.

This year’s lineup is truly a high point in Pickathon’s existence. We are pleased to welcome Feist, Andrew Bird, Divine Fits, Sharon Van Etten, The Devil Makes Three, Kurt Vile & The Violators, Sallie Ford & The Sound Outside, Vieux Farka Touré, Howe Gelb, Lady, Shabazz Palaces, The Felice Brothers, Tift Merritt, Wayne Hancock, Marco Benevento, The Lone Bellow, Dale Watson, Foxygen, Parquet Courts, Breathe Owl Breathe, White Fence, Yellowbirds, and so much more! The full lineup is below (though there might be a few surprises along the way, so stay tuned). Also, remember, each band is at the festival for two days, playing two sets on two of six very unique stages! Where else can you see a band play an outdoor festival set in front of thousands and the next night, witness the same band in a sweaty and rollicking rock club environment? Only at Pickathon!

Pickathon founder Zale Schoenborn spoke with SPIN Magazine, which premiered the lineup this morning along with the interview. Read more about what makes year 15 special on SPIN.com.
