Singer-songwriter Angel Olsen recently released Burn Your Fire For No Witness, her debut on Jagjaguwar records. The Missouri born musician released her first full length album, Half Way Home, in 2012 to critical acclaim, and first garnered attention as a back up singer with Bonnie “Prince” Billy. Where Olsen’s Half Way Home was marked by indie-folk, a little bit of twang and acoustic guitars, Burn Your Fire has a much fuller sound and yet her enchanting vocals and stories remain up front in the mix, with a mix of folk, country and psychedelia swirling throughout the songs. Below, via NPR Music’s Heavy Rotation download “High & Wild” from Angel’s new album.

Olsen plays Johnny Brenda’s on Wednesday, May 14th.
