If you've never listened to Angel Olsen, the possessed quality of her vocals can be jarring. Operating somewhere in between the monotone flatline of Nico and the spatial dreaminess of Mazzy Star, Olsen champions a hypnotic contingent to her songs that implores repeated listens. After you hear the lo-fi warble of "Lonely Universe" from her most recent LP Half Way Home—and one of the most melancholy songs penned in the last five years—it's clear that Olsen's knack for isolating despair and putting it through the wringer is eerily spot-on. With Portland folksters Horse Feathers on the bill, this showcase is guaranteed to yield emotive ebb and flow. RYAN J. PRADO
