Pitchfork picked up reports of a new band from indie figurehead Will Oldham, sometimes better known as Bonnie â€œPrinceâ€ Billy, called The Babblers. Much about the band remains a mystery, but The A.V. Club is absolutely sure that Oldhamâ€™s co-singer in the bandâ€”who is listed in many of the write-ups as Angela Babblerâ€”is none other than local singer-songwriter Angel Olsen.
Olsen is a great talent. Great to see others are beginning to tune in.
