Sharon Van Etten Live at Union Pool 6/12/09

I walked in a tiny bit late as Sharon Van Etten captivated the Thursday night crowd at Union Pool with her song "Consolation Prize." She stood in the center of stage excited to play for a crowd and her heart felt, beautiful-sweet voice poured off stage into our ears and numbed our minds. She next played her folk classic "For You" both off here new album entitled Because I Was In Love. The new album shares some of the tunes off her self titled debut Home Recordings but is nicely produced by Greg Weeks and a major upgrade of an improvement to the recording quality. Tonight's show was a Northside Brooklyn Music & Art Festival show which was a listed as a showcase of Transatlantic Folk. She claimed her song "I Fold" is about moving back in with her parents and trying to be OK with it. It's hard to believe with voice like hers she's not being driven around in some pimp car but I guess she'd have to do a rap cross over for that kind of expense account. She ended the set with a new song she said hoped wouldn't put us to sleep and she has to raise the capo a fret up due to her heavy smoking earlier in the night. If you have a chance to she her please get out check her out.
