Angel Olsen – “Sans” (Live Performance)

Out this week is a new album from Angel Olsen. Though, it’s not a “proper” album; rather, it’s an album of B-sides, rarities, and demos. And Phases is still worth your time (though that’s not much of a surprise). Watch Angel Olsen perform “Sans” on KCRW’s “Morning Becomes Eclectic” below.

Angel Olsen on “Sans”:

“Sans” was a song I wrote in between Burn Your Fire and My Woman, something short and simple – but about a big thing in my life: travel and what it can do to the psyche. When you’re out there and you’re working and moving so fast it’s difficult to really imagine a time when you were fully realized and known. You know, it’s hard enough to be known when you’re around! But then there are those people in your life that know you and don’t need you around all the time to be or feel close-I suppose it’s about that too.
