Angel Olsen Bring the Sunshine – and My Morning Jacket's Jim James
After soundchecking a snippet of Destiny’s Child "Say My Name," Angel Olsen took the stage to chilly temperatures and high winds on Saturday afternoon. But the sun had come out by the time the 30-year-old singer was finished with her career-spanning, piercing collection of fractured folk lullabies and R&B-indebted heavy jamming. Jim James of My Morning Jacket strutted on stage unannounced halfway through Angel Olsen's set, adding harmony vocals and playing guitar during an extended jam on 2016's "Sister," which served as the undisputed highlight. Other standouts included songs like songs like "Shut Up Kiss Me," and "Those Were the Days," as well as the finale: an understated, extended performance of "Woman." Sharing vocals alongside keyboardist Heather McEntire, Olsen's mainstage show provided one of the weekend's most boldly and admirably uncompromising performances, as Olsen and her band alternated their hushed, introspective confessionals with exploratory instrumental passages.
