Sharon Van Etten
Folk // By Hugh / 22 July, 2011
After reading Ant’s snarky post about me being a lazy jerkhole, I took it upon myself to write at least one post for you guys. It’s not like I’m doing the hard work of making excellent music, anyway. Since I am indeed a lazy jerkhole, here is another lady that I’ve written about before, Sharon Van Etten. She has the kind of voice that sounds like it’s been submerged in whiskey, and that is a great attribute for folky music. Her debut, Because I Was In Love, was a bit sparse, musically speaking, but her second album, Epic, has some more instruments thrown in. Tambourines, even! Either way, stop reading this pointless banter and listen to these gems.
