[ Jagjaguwar / CD ]
Release Date: Friday 2 September 2016
'My Woman' is lovingly put together as a proper A-side and a B-side, featuring the punchier, more pop/rock-oriented songs up front, and the longer, more reflective tracks towards the end.
The rollicking 'Shut Up Kiss Me', for example, appears early on - its nervy grunge quality belying a subtle desperation, as befits any song about the exhaustion point of an impassioned argument.
As the record evolves, you get the sense that the 'My Woman' of the title is Olsen herself - absolutely in command, but also willing to bend with the influence of collaborators and circumstances.
If ever there was any pressure in the recording process, it's totally undetectable in the result. An intuitively smart, warmly communicative and fearlessly generous record, 'My Woman' speaks to everyone.
