Upcoming Album of the Week (Ending June 11)

Bonnaroo was this past weekend and I'm starting to regret not maintaining it as my yearly tradition, especially now that they have flushable toilets (that was always my least favorite part of the festival). Regardless, there are many more fests to come over the summer that I will be making my way to in order to see some of my favorite artists, many of whom have albums coming out soon! Check those out over at my Upcoming Releases page!

This week, folk/indie chanteuse Angel Olsen announced her third album, My Woman.

Olsen first landed on my radar late in 2014, long after the release of her sophomore record, Burn Your Fire for No Witness, when she re-released the album and put out a music video for "Windows."

In ways, she reminded me of another of my favorites, Sharon Van Etten; similar enough to appeal to the same tastes, but unique enough to stand out on her own.

Earlier this month, she released a new song and video, "Intern," and followed that up on Monday with the announcement of the new album.

My Woman is set to be released on September 2.

Also announced this week:

Banks & Steelz - Anything But Words (August 26)
Blood Orange - Freetown Sound (July 1)
Deap Vally - Femejism (September 16)
Lisa Hannigan - At Swim (August 19)
Local Natives - Sunlit Youth (September 9)
Steven Tyler - We’re All Somebody from Somewhere (July 15)
Wye Oak - Tween (out now)
