...this Sharon Van Etten person seems interesting.
And not just because she grew up in suburban Jersey but now lives in Brooklyn (heh). Rather, because, as somebody last week at the New York Times magazine said about her -- plausibly I think -- her music somehow combines the venom of P J Harvey with a choir loft full of Emmylou Harrises singing harmony.
Not sure if I'm completely convinced yet, but as Keith Richards famously said to a Rolling Stone interviewer in 1988 when asked about Richard Marx: "Why do I think that maybe, just maybe, there might be something there?"
Okay granted -- that's a really unfortunate comparison. But you get my point.
In any case, you can check out the Times Van Etten profile over here, BTW.
