What makes her a woman

Not yet acquainted with Angel Olsen? Here's a great introduction, courtesy of Pitchfork's Jillian Mapes, to the one-time Bonnie "Prince" Billy collaborator whose last two LPs have been so spectacularly good as to completely transcend that past. The most recent, MY WOMAN, a stylistically varied exploration of womanhood and identity, will be the featured album on Episode 9 of Sounding Bored, due to be recorded next Monday.

The main topic of conversation for that podcast, incidentally, will be Nirvana's Nevermind, its forebears and its legacy. No doubt our conversation will be coloured by the revelation that Kurt Cobain, previously presumed dead, is actually alive and well, and still performing.

(Thanks to David for the second link.)
