Now that the holiday festivities are over, we can start off 2013 by listening to some new music from the soulfully induced angelic voice of Angel Olsen. With her sophomore album Half Way Home out now and her Sleepwalker 7” due out on January 15th, she has gifted us with two new visually delectable music videos for “Sweet Dreams” and “Tiniest Seed” to celebrate the releases.
“Sweet Dreams” is a visually stunning music video turned into a film score by Angel and her filmmaker friends Randy Sterling Hunter, Ashley Connor, and Zia Anger with a hand-wound 16mm camera. With the experimental creation of this video and ethereal beauty of it, it goes hand in hand with Angel’s raw and passionate '60s influenced sound.
Then--as a bonus--we have “Tiniest Seed.” The video itself has a more melancholic feel to it and Angel’s lyrics of longing for a distant lover give the video the perfect dramatic feel for that passionate sound that she gives.
After watching the videos below, make sure to check her tour dates and see if she's in your city so you can enjoy her raw sound live!
