I just discovered Sharon Van Etten, thanks to Stereogum featuring her latest album, “Epic,” as one of their top albums of 2010. (You can listen to Stereogum’s Top Albums of 2010 on MOG.com.)
It’s a stunning song for being so simple. Check out a version of “Don’t Do It” with just Sharon and a guitar and you’ll hear why – it’s her voice. I think it loses something with a full band accompanying her.
