LISTEN // Sharon Van Etten Shares “Just Like Blood”, “I Don’t Want To Let You Down” EP Out June 9th


“Sharon Van Etten could sing the instruction manual for a dishwasher and make it sound like lyrical poetry. Over the course of four full-lengths, her voice has only evolved and grown both bolder and more nuanced. Van Etten plays every word like an instrument, bending one note into the next with a woozy purr that’s sometimes sensual, sometimes heartbreaking but always arresting.”
NPR Music’s “Songs We Love”

Couldn’t agree more. That’s why we’ve been working on Sharon Van Etten’s next project ‘Sharon Sings Your Favorite Instructional Manuals” EP for a while now. In the meantime, check out new track “Just Like Blood” from the upcoming “I Don’t Want To Let You Down” EP, out 6/3 via Jagjaguwar. This second single is as sophisticated and evolved as anything Van Etten has ever created. Listen above or on our SoundCloud page.

“I Don’t Want To Let You Down” EP EP is available now for pre-order. Instant free downloads of “Just Like Blood” and the EP’s title track come with each digital pre-order.

Pre-Order I Don’t Want to Let You Down via SC Distribution, Amazon, iTunes, or your local record store.

EP ANNOUNCE // Sharon Van Etten Announces “I Don’t Want To Let You Down” EP Out June 9th

jag266dig1

Sharon Van Etten has never needed much room to make a grand statement. With four albums diligently released during the last six years, she’s become one of music’s most astute new cartographers of the heart, able to capture emotional trials and triumphs with incisive lines and a voice that loses nothing in the translation and transmission of feelings. Her second record, epic, needed only seven tracks to live up to its title. Her subsequent albums, 2012’s Tramp and last year’s Are We There, went longer, but Van Etten managed still to squeeze enormous sentiments into especially small spaces. From start to rising stardom, Van Etten has forever understood the impact of economy.

It should come as no surprise, then, that Van Etten’s forthcoming five-song EP, I Don’t Want to Let You Down, functions as much more than some between-albums, on-tour stopgap. In only 22 minutes, Van Etten offers documents of surrender and disappointment, admission and longing. The songs are as sophisticated and evolved as anything Van Etten has ever done. Produced by Van Etten and Are We There producing partner Stewart Lerman, the EP features a sterling crew of collaborators: Heather Woods Broderick (keyboards, strings, vocals), Doug Keith (guitar), Zeke Hutchins (drums), Brad Cook (bass), Darren Jesse (drums), Peter Broderick (strings), Stuart Bogie (woodwinds), and The War On Drugs’ Adam Granduciel (guitar) and Dave Hartley (bass).

Sharon Van Etten I Don’t Want to Let You Down EP is out June 9th on Jagjaguwar and available for pre-order now. An instant free download of the title track, debuted in January on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, comes with each digital pre-order. Surrounding the release of the EP, Sharon will play select festivals and tour South America. Full tour dates after the jump.

Pre-Order I Don’t Want to Let You Down via SC Distribution, Amazon, iTunes, or your local record store.

WATCH // S. Carey Shares ‘Supermoon’ EPK Via Outside Magazine, New EP Out Feb. 17, April Dates Added To Living Room Tour

S. Carey debuted the EPK for his upcoming Supermoon EP today via Outside Magazine premiere. The video – gorgeously shot primarily in the Wisconsin wilderness – provides a further window into the musical inspiration that Carey finds in nature and family. The Supermoon EP offers reimagined versions of the Eau Claire-native singer/songwriter and Bon Iver-multi-instrumentalist’s two full-lengths, 2010’s All We Grow and 2014’s Range of Light, alongside the title track new song and a Radiohead cover. Go behind the scenes with a special EPK directed by Dan Huiting you can watch above or on YouTube.

Pre-order the EP via SC Distribution, iTunes, and Amazon.

The Supermoon EP, recorded during August 2014’s perigee-syzygy (a/k/a super moon), is a study in scale, space, and proximity. With the songs pared down to essential, acoustic parts, their beauty, intimacy, and potently personal nature are allowed to shine through in new and distinctive ways. Carey’s gentle, evocative vocals glide atop lilting yet percussive piano and subtle harmonic strings; his breath between words and the pat of his fingers on his family’s baby grand keys have been left audible. Inspired by nature, as with much of his work, and the excitement of on the spot song arrangements for various sessions while on tour, the Supermoon EP was laid to tape with the help of longtime friends and collaborators Zach Hanson (who engineered, mixed, and mastered) and Mike Noyce (who played viola). The EP is captivating and understated, adding a new chapter to the still-unfolding story of Sean Carey as an artist.

Carey has added April dates to his upcoming living room tour, presented by Undertow Music Collective. This series of shows will showcase the stripped-down artistry of the Supermoon EP and begin on February 5th in Des Moines, IA.
