Show: Junip, Sharon Van Etten On their debut album, Swedish trio Junip “sounds like Bread jamming with Klaus Dinger—and the funny thing is, it works,” writes Peter Margasak. Singer-songwriter Sharon Van Etten opens; her recent second album, Epic, adds bigger melodies and full-band arrangements to her elegant, transparently personal lyrics, haunting melodies, and judiciously ornamented singing.
