Angel Olsen's Strange Cacti (2011) has something intimate and mysterious to it. It's like walking into a strange bar in the basement of an old run down building, drawn by a distant melody, you're on your own, a woman is on stage singing to this empty space you find yourself in, there is a bright light shining on her black gown, there is dust in the air, and the music resonates, it fills the room with a thick dream-like atmosphere which you quickly find yourself fully submerged in.
