2014 is off to a pretty good start—at least musically. Old standbys like St. Vincent and Beck both just released fantastic albums, and Angel Olsen released a beautiful album, Burn Your Fire for No Witness, last week. I somehow have completely missed her debut album—who knows, maybe I didn't think that somebody with the name Angel was going to win me over—but Olsen has a stunning voice, and creates the kind of muted, melancholy folk songs that I love. Her overall sound reminds me of Sharon Van Etten, which of course means that I can't get enough. She'll be at SXSW this year, and luckily, so will I, so here's hoping that I'll be able to catch one of her shows.

Buy the album and check out her NPR Tiny Desk concert below.
