SHARON VAN ETTEN - Are We There LP
The list of contributors on 'Are We There’ reads as pretty much a 'who's who' of contemporaneous alt-rock talent. Torres, Brodericks Heather Woods and Peter, The War On Drugs’ Dave Hartley and Adam Granduciel and Shearwater’s Jonathan Meiberg are but a few of those to pitch in here. Then there's Van Etten herself, an artist who had really recognised her own power on 'Are We There’s predecessor ‘Tramp’ and harnessed it once more here. No wonder that the resulting an album, a determined and often beautiful listen that shares space with Angel Olsen and Big Thief, is regarded as one of Van Etten’s best.
