sharon van etten’s upcoming album are we there is a highly anticipated release over here at dimestore saints. initially bolstered by the excellent “taking chances,” the record provides additional support with “every time the sun comes up,” its final track. van etten’s vocal melody is slightly jarring throughout the verses, perfectly complementing its mournful timbre, but the refrains always offer some form of resolution and security. stream “every time the sun comes up” below, courtesy of jagjaguwar’s soundcloud page.
