Brooklyn-based folksy songstress Sharon Van Etten's repertoire has expanded naturally. "People say I'm a one-hit wonder," she sings on her new album's closer, "Every Time the Sun Comes Up." Then a twist: "But what happens when I have two?" The joke, of course, is that it's not clear which song of hers she's talking about. It's arguable that 2012's "Serpents," an indie get-together featuring members of the National and Wye Oak, is her most successful track to date, but it wasn't exactly "Little Lion Man." From her lo-fi beginnings to Are We There, that latest effort, Van Etten has favored patience-rewarding tempos and stripped, balanced arrangements. Nowadays, the combination is especially devastating, offering a more forgiving canvas for her lovelorn meditation. With Lower Dens singer Jana Hunter. 18+. (Photo by Dusdin Condren)
