On Sunday night the ever-impressive Angel Olsen played to a sold out crowd at Warsaw in Brooklyn, the second of her sold out two-night run in New York, with a performance coming the night before at Webster Hall (as well as a show at Basilica SoundScape in Hudson, New York, on Friday).

She’s reached even new levels of acclaimed and popularity with her latest release, My Woman (released via Jagjaguwar), which is one of my favorite albums of the year. The 16-song setlist mostly featured glossy versions of new standout tracks such as “Sister,” “Heart Shaped Face,” “Give It Up,” and “Shut Up Kiss Me.” This was complimented by reworked versions of material from 2014’s Burn Your Fire For No Witness, such as “Forgiven/Forgotten,” “Lights Out,” and the still haunting “Windows.”

Opening the show was eccentric Australian songwriter Alex Cameron who opened things up with a set of quirky songs backed up on by saxophone player Roy Molloy. He shared the delightful offerings from his recently released debut album Jumping The Shark, which is out via Secretly Canadian. His set was a genuine delight that got the night started on the right foot and certainly got Warsaw all warmed up.

[…] It’s hard to describe the music of Australian songwriter Alex Cameron in terms of just one genre. This year saw the release of his most memorable debut album Jumping The Shark, which is out via Secretly Canadian. And just this past Sunday I saw him dazzle a sold out crowd at Warsaw while opening for Angel Olsen. […]

[…] and only other time I caught Cameron live was during his opening performance for Angel Olsen at Warsaw during fall 2016. He brought a swagger to his performance that you rarely see on stage, let alone from an opener. […]
