Sharon Van Etten: “Like A Diamond”

When Matt, Cole and I saw Sharon Van Etten in Columbus this past January, it’s safe to say we were all rather smitten. I had thoroughly enjoyed Van Etten’s album Epic, with its angst and anger rolled up into her subtly strong croon. Cracking silly jokes and giggling with her guitar slung over her shoulder on the stage that night, Van Etten showed the music truly is cathartic for her. She couldn’t have been nicer greeting fans after the show. She is not brooding in person, but when she writes and sings, it’s about letting the listener feel the sharp edges of melancholy.

Van Etten and Western Vinyl released her cover of Glass Ghost’s “Like A Diamond” as a free download this week. Just some keys and click-clacking percussion behind her, Van Etten delivers melancholy like only she can. What do you guys think?
