Only two months ripped from the calendar but we’re still placing Sharon Van Etten’s Remind Me Tomorrow as the best release of 2019 (to date). Her fifth studio album is elevates and eclipses everything. It’s also informed by significant life choices since 2015’s Are We There. She’s become a mother, studied psychology, scored a film and starred in Netflx’s The OA. In other words, she’s been keeping herself busy and this diversification informs the new material which is suffused by a sense of purpose, precision and contentment. Her rich vocals, edgy instrumentation and sophisticated lyrics remain in place; Comeback Kid, Jupiter 4 and Seventeen are bona fide classics already. Expect serious adulation.
