Top 10 Albums of 2019

John Preston

3. Angel Olsen – All Mirrors

All Mirrors could be Angel Olsen’s imaginary soundtrack to Sunset Boulevard, an old story that never loses it relevance with ghosts, identity breakdown and the subsequent loss of power.

Angel of course plays Norma Desmond and brings a 14-piece orchestra along for the ride with elements of glam rock, electro pop and ambient drones. Reinvention of the year.

About John Preston

South London based music obsessive with strong opinions about most things. Doubts Madonna has another good record in her but would love more than anything to be proved wrong.
