This woman is priceless. Sharon Van Etten sent me an email almost 8 months ago inviting me to go at one of her shows. I was a bit taken aback, someone as brilliant as this woman talking to me without the pretentions of a feigned musician always something laudable in my dictionary. But you don’t think I’d give compliments if it doesn’t have the utter talent to back it up, do you? And with someone who has Vashti Bunyan, Sibylle Baier, Low, Neil Young, Diane Cluck and Antony & The Johnsons (to name a few) as her musical influences, you’d know I’m talking serious shit.
