I dig the sophisticated indie-folk sounds of Brooklyn’s Sharon Van Etten. Her third album, Tramp, offers a rich collection of warm, honest and heartfelt songs, held together by a sense of yearning and longing for change. It’s an album filled with gentle guitars, poetic lyrics, and a sentiment of defiance, which is Tramp’s greatest strength.
