Track of the Day: Sharon Van Etten and Marie-Claire Balabanian - "Keep Trying"

As the blogging world has erupted around the collab between Janelle Monáe's fantastic new single "Q.U.E.E.N." featuring Erykah Badu, this track seemed to jump out at me.  Now, obviously, we could just put up the link to that track, but look, it's already been all over the place and (gee) now it's up there, too.  So, rather than rehash, let's work with some memory.  Today's track is an oldie (from back in 2010) collaboration between Sharon Van Etten and Marie-Claire Balabanian of Speck Mountain. The track is a slow haunter with both voices lilting and descending in an almost meditative state.  Quoth the Soundcloud:
The track is available on EardrumsPop's "Between Two Waves" compilation. This is a 3 volumed compilation where all the 40 songs are made as collaborations between bands. The full album is released for free as a digital download from and this song is on volume B:
