Sharon Van Etten: I Don’t Want to Let You Down

Sharon_optWith sad vocals which sound more moaned than sung, this is perfect break-up music for those left behind. At times Sharon sounds artfully rough and unpolished which serves to enhance the emotional nature of her music. The last two tracks pick up just enough tempo to hint at anger, but leave you sad and longing for more never the less. A very good listen, but one which should be reserved for darker times so as not to ruin a party or other happy circumstance.
