Sharon Van Etten - Remind Me Tomorrow
« on: January 15, 2019, 11:53:09 AM »
New album out now from everyone's favourite depressed female minstrel

TBH I haven't caught up with her for a while (I'd assumed she's gone a bit rocky for my liking). But had a relisten of Epic and Tramp and it's all great stuff - though I'm slightly distracted by the fact every song on Tramp sounds like it could be/has been played over the final credits of every season finale of every HBO drama.

She's playing near me but it's sold out already :(

I'm sure there were some fans of her on here last time I checked...

I am one fan. Sort of. I loved both Epic and Tramp, but I've never got around to Because I Was in Love and Are We There.

I heard the comeback single, appropriately titled Comeback Kid and, sadly, wasn't all that impressed by it. It sounds like she's gone a bit Springsteen, which isn't inherently bad, I just didn't care for that one song. Marc Riley played another new one recently, which I liked a good deal more.

Tee hee. Not HBO, but I think they did use Serpents in an episode of The Walking Dead.

Love her so much I made the bold decision last year to make her my profile pic.
Lucky lady.


That album in the middle has a bonus 7" which is one of the toughest, thickest pieces of vinyl I own,
it's like a bloody stihl saw blade.

Not heard any of her new album except "Comeback Kid", which I didn't like at first, but now I think it's fucking great.
Looking forward to hearing it on Friday.

Don't think I'll bother seeing her on this UK tour, didn't clock that it was even happening until it was all sold out.

Heather Woods Broderick is the lass who is part of her live band, and she is pretty damn good in her own right.
"Glider" is a good album, very Cocteaus.

She does have a lovely voice but, when I saw them on tour in 2012, I was a bit annoyed that she was singing over Van Etten much of the time.

Tramp is/was fantastic, but she didn't sustain that quality over her next couple of releases, I reckon.

i loved 'are we there'. bit surprised by people's indifference to it. 'Our love' is just an incredible song.

The new album is a lot more upbeat apparently. think she wanted to avoid using guitars so much.

can't wait to hear it anyway.

This is particularly good. www.youtube.com/watch?v=W4etGf2PJcA

I like the move to synths. My copy of Tramp came with a bonus CD of four synthy numbers. They were a little rough around the edges, but I thought at the time it would be a good direction for her to take.

Yeah, it's great, not one duff track.
The EP she did with the leftovers of the "Are We There" sessions is cracking too.

Enjoyed my first listen - her songwriting chops remain. John Congleton's production is all over it. Very reminiscent of his work with St Vincent.

I finally got this the other day. I tried getting it at HMV, but they hadn't got any new stock in since going into administration. I'm still at the stage in which the new tunes are just kind of washing over me (which isn't helped by having all the singles clumped together) but it's all very promising so far. I've completely changed my opinion of Comeback Kid in just a couple of listens.
