Fresh grief! like fresh love! has a way of sharpening our vision and bringing on painful clarifications” No matter how temporary we know these states to be! the vulnerability and transformation they demand can overpower the strongest among us” Then there are the rare! fertile moments when both occur! when mourning and limerence heighten! complicate and explain each other# the songs that comprise Angel Olsen’s Big Time were forged in such a whiplash”

Big Time is an album about the expansive power of new love! but this brightness and optimism is tempered by a profound and layered sense of loss” During Olsen’s process of coming to terms with her queerness
and confronting the traumas that had been keeping her from fully accepting herself! she felt it was time to come out to her parents! a hurdle she’d been avoiding for some time” “Finally! at the ripe age of $%! I was free to be me!” she said” Three days later! her father died and shortly after her mother passed away” The shards of this grief—the
shortening of her chance to finally be seen more fully by her parents— are scattered throughout the album”

Three weeks after her mother’s funeral she was in the studio! recording this incredibly wise and tender new album” Loss has long been a subject of Olsen’s elegiac songs! but few can write elegies with quite the
reckless energy as she” If that bursting&at&the&seams! running downhill energy has come to seem intractable to her work! this album proves Olsen is now writing from a more rooted place of clarity” She’s working
with an elastic! expansive mastery of her voice—both sonically and artistically” These are songs not just about transformational mourning! but of finding freedom and joy in the privations as they come”
