Sharon Van Etten: November 7, 2009 Union Pool – Flac and MP3 Downloads

November 17, 2009

Two things became abundantly clear to me as I watched Sharon Van Etten’s performance last Saturday at the Kevchino-produced show at Union Pool. First, given the packed crowd and the rapt attention that they paid to the performer, at this point in her career it is clear that Sharon can headline a venue of this size. The second fact is that I have simply not seen Sharon often enough this year. Other than her guest appearance at the Antlers CD release show in March, the Union Pool show is merely the second Sharon show I saw this year. During moments like the sweet “Much More Than That”, the breathtakingly beautiful voice that sets SVE apart from her contemporaries is the musical elixir that creates such emotions as to literally hush a packed room. I do, in fact, need much more of that.

This set was recorded with the same equipment and location as the Natureboy set and if one doesn’t mind some bar noise and some hiss in the speakers, the sound quality is quite good. Enjoy!

Sharon Van Etten appears again at the Bowery Ballroom on December 15, as an opening act for The Antlers. We will be there.
