Angel Olsen - "Hi-Five"


Angel Olsen's latest single from Burn Your Fire for No Witness is called "Hi-Five," and it starts with the lyric "I'm so lonesome, I could cry." Distorted, yearning vocals geared over equally distorted, yearning guitars, slide effects and piano riffs kicking in just when you start missing them - basically, it's the dreamiest alt-country imaginable, the soundtrack to all our aimless driving from now on. We love Angel's recent tendency to end her songs with the repeated mantra "I do," as though she were throwing your marriage proposal back in your face. We cannot wait for this record - it's our February 18 - or to see Angel at SXSW.
