Sharon Van Etten: "One Day"

Static video with lyrics in the comments. She's got a striking sound, but none of the live videos did justice to it, I thought...

Here's a live in-studio performance from KEXP...

Vox Von Braun: "Julia"

Pretty good rock band from Netherlands. Of the four P's, they hit on three (psych, pop, punk). Currently playing with Teenage Fanclub and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club over there later in November, that should help them with exposure... anyone who likes those two better-known bands should give these folks at try. This song is from their album Something Ain't Wrong, and I heard them on an old KEXP podcast.
