Beatific, sultry singer and guitar player Angel Olsen, whose name belies the way we feel about her, signed with Jagjaguwar yesterday in a move over from bedroom label Bathetic. This news comes with the announcement that Bathetic will be rereleasing Olsen's debut solo album, Strange Cacti, on vinyl, and her second record, Half Way Home, will finally see the light of day in CD form come May 14. We're thrilled to hear Olsen will be getting a grander scale of attention, as her talent knows no bounds. You can order both of these releases at Bathetic's site, and visit this page to see Angel Olsen's first-person documentation of her East Coast Half Way Home tour.
