Sharon Van Etten’s “Because I Was In Love”

I’ve been listening to this all morning and thought I should share it with you folks out there:

Sharon Van Etten

Because I was In Love

The album is incrediby beautiful.

It was recorded by Greg Weeks of Espers and is mostly Sharon’s voice and guitar.   Weeks additions echo the Espers sound, as one would expect, but they are only a means to modestly yet beautifully dress up Van Etten’s heartwrenching songs.

I liked this description of her voice from

“There is no bravado, no ego, just poignant lyrics, floating melodies, and a voice like silk and milk and tears.”

Sharon will be coming to Burlington in late July, so keep an eye or two open for that one.
