Alex Cameron says Angel Olsen is speaking to him in an alien tongue

5 Songs We Can't Stop Listening To is our chance to talk to artists we love about songs they love.

Listen to the whole segment below.
Alex Cameron on Angel Olsen

Our guest today is Alex Cameron. Alex Cameron is this musician from Australia who is doing things that other musicians just aren't doing. He's talking about subjects other musicians aren’t talking about. He's very comfortable on the stage. Above all, what he is doing is interesting. And I love him. I think he's one of the more underrated musicians making music. I hope that more people listen to his music because of this. Our guest today is Alex Cameron.

Alex, what is the last song that you couldn't stop listening to?

I had to press replay on Angel Olsen's "Lark." I had to go back and listen to it again. And then I watched the video who was directed by Ashley Connor, who I've worked with on a number of occasions. Again, I had to press replay on that.

There is just something about it that is just scary. Angel is operating on a level that is…she's speaking in a futuristic language. It's like she is communicating in some kind of alien tongue, but it makes sense.

She's unreal.

She always surprises me with what she does, and it's always good.
