At last year’s Damon Albarn-sponsored Honest Jon’s Chop Up, the most perplexing figure was not Albarn behind a keyboard, Tony Allen on the drum riser, Candi Staton belting, or the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble swinging as one.

Tonight she returns to re-murmur those songs, the stage completely to herself. With Sharon Van Etten.
