Ed. Note: There is a timelessness to the sound of Sharon Van Etten that is both emphatic and devastating. A soulful, sensual and sorrowful candor played out a in big band (not in the swing sense, just fulsome) context as opposed to the bare armed oppression of the solo sirens I often heard her sidled by when we were first introduced. She is something of a wonder and Are We There is nothing short of a triumph of the ever-embattled will. El Jefe caught her live recently and as his documents (and late, rambling accolades) attest, her strength on wax is all-but paled by the magnitude of her talent on stage. Now please dig, if you will, his pictures.
