TOTW: Sharon Van Etten_ Jupiter 4

I really like the album “Remind Me Tomorrow” by Sharon Van Etten. It manages to create a dark, sweltering world of sound that blends a more standard rock band set up with powerful synths and experimental sound design.

It was really hard to pick one particular track from an album that has so many stand out pieces. Eventually I decided to go for “Jupiter 4,” which (I’m guessing ) is named after the iconic Roland synthesiser. It’s sounds are all over this album, and are used in this track to create the rasping bass pad effect. This creates a foundation of a dark and brooding sound that is enhanced by the tracks down tempo percussion and Sharon Van Ettens vocal delivery.
