Favorite Songs of the 2010s # 22 “Sister” by Angel Olsen

Angel Olsen



From album My Woman


The centerpiece and highlight of Angel’s brilliant album My Woman. The song relaxingly ambles along for about four and a half minuets, which would have been a great song in it’s own right, before breaking down with the lyric “all my life I thought I’d change.” This becomes the only thing she says for the remainder of the songs as it slowly builds into an incredible instrumental part. Give yourself eight minutes and listen for yourself.
