Nov 4, 2019

True to type we return to moody, melancholic indie this week. Only this time it’s a little more diverse, as Sharon Van Etten’s fifth album ‘Remind Me Tomorrow’ augment her usual folk-ish indie rock sound with everything from trip-hop to 80s synth pop.

This album was released in 2019, which makes it the newest record to be nominated for our discography. Whilst it is a pretty good record, some of our attention turns towards wondering if we can call an album unsung when it is an artist’s latest release. Particularly when that release has been the recipient of its fair share of critical acclaim.

Elsewhere, we due the usual due diligence on her back catalogue, and also discuss some of the female artists that sprung up around the same time as Sharon Van Etten.

Is ‘Remind Me Tomorrow’ worthy of a place in our discography? Vote below, and if you’re unfamiliar with her work Chris has chucked together a few choice cuts from her back catalogue alongside a raft of influences and influencees.
