SHARON VAN ETTEN, Don’t Do It (from Epic, 2010)
Sharon Van Etten is a rare female folk singer-songwriters, who turns vulnerability in lyrics and vocals into a beautiful empowering fete. She was featured here a few months ago with her stunning song Love More, and now she’s back with her sophomore full length, Epic. This album is perfection for the folk music lover, and an intriguing beauty for those who appreciate the genre less. Van Etten is nothing but raw and true, and Don’t Do It is no exception. Do yourself a favor and delve into the entire record, not just this song. It is worth all the patience it takes for those of you with an inclination for more upbeat genres.
