You don't get the impression that Sharon Van Etten is a tour-de-force talent when you're talking to her one-on-one. But that's exactly what she is -- an artist with a simple sound of great magnitude.

In her book "Bossypants" Tiny Fey describes "30 Rock" co-star Alec Baldwin's "Irish Negotiating Technique" as Baldwin saying "they offered me more money and I told them to go f**k themselves." Baldwin might have too much money to care by this point, but his technique is not terribly different from that of Calvin Johnson, frontman of the Hive Dwellers.
