On her third album, Angel Olsen rides waves of emotional intensity that take her from the depths of despair to the heights of hope. Burn Your Fire for No Witness is a worthy successor to her 2012 breakthrough Half Way Home, revisiting many of the earlier album’s themes with greater focus and maturity. Tracks like Forgiven/Forgotten, Lights Out, and Enemy probe the subtle torments of love with an unflinching hand.
When Angel Olsen's proper debut, Half Way Home, materialized in 2012, its spare indie folk compositions and subtle references to the greats of '50s country congealed into a restless whole.
Hi-Five, the third song on Angel Olsen’s second album, Burn Your Fire for No Witness, has got to be one of the most cheerful songs ever written about being lonely. A twangy electric folk tune that begins with an invocation of its muse, Hank Williams, the song is all stomp-and-rollick until it stops to catch its breath for a moment in the bridge. Are you lonely too? Olsen warbles. Enemy" hangs like a spiderweb in the album's quietest corridor-an intricate wisp of a song that she patiently spins into something hallowed and heartbreaking. Then there’s White Fire, a sparse, nearly seven-minute incantation that sounds like a lost Songs of Leonard Cohen cut but gradually accumulates an atmosphere of its own. When Olsen switches into ballad mode, she fares best with hushed, minimal arrangements.
Half Way Home, the 2012 album with which Angel Olsen built her name, was a great album, but its greatness was the sort that you can only really admire from a distance. Whether purposefully or as a byproduct of the way it was recorded, Half Way Home sounded like the sort of record you might dig up at a deep-south flea market. Olsen’s voice was a spectral operatic trill, and it danced above her skeletal acoustic folk and old-timey country songs like a flame flickering over a match’s head.
