Sharon Van Etten is no ordinary guitar-wielding singer-songwriter: Sure, she sings softly and woundedly, but her music has teeth. You know you're witnessing a rare talent when a small, quiet, lone musician can draw every other sound out of a crowded bar. Last year, Van Etten followed her intimate solo debut (Because I Was in Love) with Epic, which expands her sound to something approaching rock 'n' roll. Naturally, her gorgeous music loses nothing in translation.

Recorded live at The Gorge on Saturday, May 28, Van Etten performs here as part of the 2011 Sasquatch Music Festival outside Seattle, Wash.
