Olsen, Angel - Strange Cacti LP
Released by Bathetic Records.
‰ÛÏInspired by multilingual chanteuse and heartbreaker Dalida, and gran with attitude Malvina Reynolds, her songs are beautiful whether they're saying ‰Û÷Fuck You' or whispering ‰Û÷I'll Always Love You'.‰ - Neu Magazine
‰ÛÏAngel's voice is nary in a stagnant note-embodying the vocal variety of Joni Mitchell, the morose candor of Fran̤oise Hardy; though not singing but studdering, staggering, an angst-stricken woman stammers through the song until a defiant end.‰ - Ryan Ellis, Weekly Tape Deck & Altered Zones
‰ÛÏThe songs on Strange Cacti are night songs ‰ÛÓ songs for dark places and sad, scary times ‰ÛÓ but they're touching, too, haunting in all the right ways.‰ - Side Ponytail
