Of all the gigs I attended this year, Sharon Van Etten's Exit/In performance might have just been the most satisfying. From the intimacy of her set, her stage presence, and the fact that her music is all sorts of fantastic, she made me a big fan. At the end of the month, I'll start compiling my favorite tracks and albums for some sort of end of the year lists, and 'Are We There' will be there, most likely in the top 10, and a few songs are likely to make appearances as well.
I was in London in June 5th when she performed at Koko, but was unable to get accommodations sorted out in time to make it to the show. My travel companions weren't too keen on the gig anyway as we'd just gotten into town hurriedly on two wheels. She'll be back in London April 29th, and I just might be able to make that show. Still sorting out travel dates, but want to see her again.
Anyway, Sharon released the video to the stunning track, 'Your Love Is Killing Me' last week, and now I'm featuring it as my Song of the Day. Watch it below.
