We thought her debut album, on Language Of Stone, the very sexy “Because I Was in Love” (2009), went by far more unnoticed than the animist, intimate and melancholic folk-pop gems like “ For You” or “Much More Than That” deserved. Maybe that’s why the second longplayer by chanteuse Sharon Van Etten is being released on Ba Da Bing. Early in Spring 2010, Van Etten recorded nine new songs at the Miner Street Studios in Philadelphia, on which Meg Baird ( Espers ), Jessica Larabee ( She Keeps Bees ) and Cat Martino can also be heard. Seven of those tracks form her second album, ironically titled “Epic”, which will be released by Ba Da Bing around 5th October. As a first taste, you can hear “Love More”, after the break.
