The third LP by Sharon Van Etten, Tramp, is her most assured musical statement to date. Her label Jagjaguwar is releasing the record in February, but NPR has a stream of it in full for a limited time, which you can hear via this link. Guest players come and go as the record progresses, with contributions from members of Wye Oak, Beirut, the Walkmen and the National. But they are just bit part players helping to bring Van Etten’s singular vision to life, which, as NPR points out, contains a “refreshing, unmistakable directness.”
