Angel Olsen - My Woman
My Woman (stylized as MY WOMAN) is the third studio album by American singer-songwriter Angel Olsen recorded at Vox Studios in Los Angeles with producer Justin Raisen. The album was structured as sides of a vinyl record: "On one side, it’s as if you were having an upbeat day and wanted to try something a little hectic. But then, if you feel like things were slowing down and you wanted to be more reflective, then you listen to Side B." With regard to the album's themes, Olsen said that My Woman addresses "the complicated mess of being a woman."
Compared to Olsen's previous album, My Woman contains a poppier, more diverse sound. Musical genres and musicians that influenced the album includes Fleetwood Mac, The Shirelles, Crazy Horse, 1970s glam rock, 1960s country pop and grunge. The album's opening track, "Intern," is a synthpop song that was considered to be a major departure from Olsen's previous works. Written as an experiment to "fuck with people," Olsen said of "Intern," "I have some friends who make synth music and I thought it might be fun to do something sarcastic." Critics have compared "Never Be Mine" to 1960s jangle pop and Portuguese guitar music. The album's closer, "Pops," is a piano ballad.
