Video: Sharon Van Etten, Live in Austin

April 5, 2012

Somehow amid the hustle and bustle of SXSW, catching Sharon Van Etten’s return to Austin slipped between the cracks this year. Having gotten a healthy dose of a few Epic-heavy sets in 2011, it seemed smarter to focus on newer emerging acts last month. As it turns out, though, these shows were comprised of almost all new material plucked from her latest LP, Tramp. Well, we didn’t really miss out: Complete with Doug Keith setting the bass aside in favor of handling guitar and harmonium, harmony vox and other instruments from Heather Broderick, and Van Etten rocking the autoharp on “Magic Harp,” the 4-piece band’s full set at Stubb’s — where Fiona Apple and the rest of a completely 24B-approved lineup performed on 3/14 — is here in full:
