“I’ve been watching all of my past repeating … a million moments landing on your smile, buried alive, I could have died to stay there,” Angel Olsen intones reverently on the title track of her new album, All Mirrors. The album is suffused with themes of romantic love, and the Asheville, North Carolina, singer wraps her dreamy vocals at times within the weave of a lush string section. Such gauzy songs as “Impasse” and “Too Easy” bump up against harder and more enigmatic tunes like “New Love Cassette” and “What It Is.” A swirl of electronics twists around Olsen on “Summer,” before she downshifts into the starkly moving late-night cabaret idyll “Endgame.” On her highly anticipated current tour, she’s scattering a few of her early favorites into a set stacked with songs from All Mirrors. Recent shows have been closing with “True Blue,” Olsen’s collaboration with Mark Ronson. With Vagabon.
