Kate Maruyama - Harrowgate... Michael should be overjoyed by the birth of his son, but his wife, Sarah won't let him touch the baby or allow anyone to visit.
 Greta, an intrusive, sinister doula has wormed her way into their lives, driving a wedge between Michael and his family. Every time he leaves the Harrowgate, he returns to find his beloved wife and baby altered. He feels his family slipping away and, as a malevolent force begins to creep in, Michael does what any new father would do—he fights to keep his family together.
Today we review the sophomore LP from Angel Olsen, Burn Your Fire For No Witness, which came out on February 18th through Jagjaguwar records. It is her first release with a full backing band and it’s obvious her sound has progressed into territory much edgier than her folk singer-songwriter roots. The album is sonically pleasing, full of twang, candor, vulnerability, and aggression. It’s explorative and promising, it should interesting to see how the full band’s sound continues to develop.
