Remind Me Tomorrow comes four years after Are We There, and reckons with the life that gets lived when you put off the small and inevitable in favour of something more present. Throughout the album, Sharon Van Etten veers towards the driving, dark glimmer moods that have illuminated the edges of her music and pursues them full force. This is an ambitious album with curling low vocals and brave intimacy, that provokes our most sensitive impulses: reckless affections, spirited nurturing, and tender courage.
The songs are as resonant as ever, the themes are still an honest and subtle approach to love and longing, but producer/arranger John Congleton has plucked out new idiosyncrasies from Van Etten’s sound.
Note: the LP is available on exclusive indies-only coloured vinyl.
