Video: Sharon Van Etten "For You"
Sharon Van Etten has found her way out of the mire and into the eye of the press, receiving rave reviews (see our thoughts here) for her new album because I was in love, due May 9 on Language of Stone. Hew new video "For You" debuted on Pitchfork, no less. Yes, even they label her as a Cat Power disciple, but her songs and this video are a stark reminder that only a mass of talent and a good voice can propel one above the sea of open-mic-mediocrity. Van Etten is currently touring Europe with the equally great and underappreciated Great Lake Swimmers.
