Sharon Van Etten + Julianna Barwick Interview

Thursday, January 20, 2011 - 3:00PM

These two great songstresses of the folk genre will be coming to our studio before their show at Johnny Brenda's. Both recognized on Pitchfork for their unique sounds, Sharon Van Etten plays bittersweet neofolk so slow, spare and subtle that you might have to crane your neck to hear. Barwick's songs are mostly a cappella, with lots of loops and layers and builds; very creative, very entrancing. Listen to them talk about their sound, their feelings, heck even their favorite animal! (Maybe there'll be a pair of tickets in it for you...)

"Staten Island band Cymbals Eat Guitars came out of seemingly nowhere when, a little under a month ago, their debut album, Why There Are Mountains, was bestowed Pitchfork's "Best New Music" honor. Who were these guys? Staten Island, seriously?
