This week Sharon Van Etten releases her latest studio album, Tramp. Of all the music released so far in 2012, this album is the one I have most recommended to family and friends. To celebrate the album's release I posted a collection of studio tracks and live performances by Sharon Van Etten today.
To enter, name the last musician or band you recommended to friends. If you feel there hasn't been a decent album released since Jethro Tull's Aqualung, feel free to state that.
One winner, chosen randomly from the commenters, will receive the following prizes:
Sharon Van Etten's album Tramp (your choice of mp3, CD or vinyl)
A $100 Threadless gift certificate to buy book-related t-shirts like A Voyage of Discovery, A Book Lover, November Was a Good Month, Brainy Rainbow, or Word!, music-related t-shirts like The Official Guide to Music, Boom Box, Sound of the Dark, or anything else.
The winner will be chosen randomly at midnight ET Friday evening (February 10th).
