A few months back we explored the pop-up venue for The National at the "High Violet Annex" and I kept looking at this one girl who kept looking at me like I was crazy for looking at her (which is why I kept looking?). Later, when she emerged from the crowd and took the stage, I realized that she probably thought I was creepy because she is a well-known Brooklyn personality named Sharon Van Etten, who writes really charming rock tunes. Whoops! My point is, she was great, and she's got a new album coming out and were all pretty excited about it.

Epic was record at Minor Street Studios in Philadelphia, with Brian McTear. It is said to preserve Etten's signature intimate sound while providing a colorful backdrop of guest musicians. For those looking for a taste of Epic, iTunes has an exclusive download of Sharons brand new single, "One Day", along with a non-LP b-side cover of the Thompson Twins, "If You Were Here". She'll also be out touring this fall with our boys Junip, catch them both for a doubly excellent show.
