Sharon van Etten’s Because I Was in Love unexpectedly turned into one of my favorite records last year. It’s translucently simple, full of light and clarity and these beautiful serpentine harmonies that Sharon sings with herself…Greg Weeks produced it and boy did he do a good job shining the light on her.
Anyway, she did pretty well in Blurt’s year-end rating (#36) and she’s playing some shows with Damon & Naomi, so got to I write a little show preview on her here
There will be a longer write-up when I go to the show in Cambridge on Sunday.
Meanwhile, here she is singing “Keep”
What a pretty voice, eh?
