When: Mon., Nov. 22, 9 p.m. 2010
Price: $15

"To say the words I want to say to you would be a crime/ To admit I'm still in love with you after all this time," Sharon Van Etten sings, starting her second album, epic, with a romantic quandary worthy of a novel. On epic, Van Etten overcomes the meek singer/ songwriter tendencies of her past, bracing her best songs to date with a magnetic, versatile voice and a band that raises her feelings like fists. She'll likely be headlining spaces this size in a year. Junip, the band José González led before he made hearts skip with his acoustic cover of The Knife's "Heartbeats," actually headlines. The band's Mute Records debut, Fields, is a careful if sometimes tepid mix of acoustic grace and warm electronic undercurrents. The sounds—gently distorted and oddly stacked—are more interesting than the songs, a problem that Van Etten does not share. —Grayson Currin
