"I washed your dishes but I shit in your bathroom," Sharon Van Etten croons delicately halfway through "Every Time the Sun Comes Up," our second taste from her upcoming record Are We There. It's a charmingly frank lyric that perfectly gets at the sometimes-awkward uncomfortableness of intimacy in a way that only Van Etten can, and juxtaposed over classic alt-country guitar chords and slides, it makes the tenuous, weirdo breed of closeness she's singing about feel like an indelible slice of Americana. Check it out - Are We There is out May 26th.
