i’ve mentioned sharon a few times on my blog before. i’m a f a n. see here and here.

“…Van Etten unveils Tramp, an album showcasing an artist in full control of her powers…Van Etten has traveled far, and if her displacement took an emotional toll, she offset those setbacks with a powerfully articulated vision. And so, once again, each listener will discover their own moments along the way, and the debates as to the best song start anew.”
