Live Video: Sharon Van Etten

If Sharon Van Etten were a different person, her brutal honesty would be too much to bear. On her terrific new album, Are We There (read our review of it here), no painful moment, self-critique or regret is too deep to share... and there are real depths in her songs!

With each sprout though, the stalks’ compositions change, and an altogether different group of shoots emerge. Like the plants themselves, The Bamboos, a resilient Australian soul/funk band, since their inception inRead more...
