Not gonna lie: we're over the moon about Sharon Van Etten's third album, a mix of moods and paces, all swirled together by her searching, expressive voice — powerful but also protean, diffuse, and propelled by sheer emotional force. Tramp (Jagjaguwar) is as great a rock album as we've heard in the past year, demanding and tough and vulnerable at the same time, with choruses that'll be stuck in your head for weeks. It also showcases Van Etten's impressive range, encompassing driving rock songs, peaceful lullabies, and meandering folk tunes, without ever sounding disjointed. Produced by another great Brooklyn rocker, the National's Aaron Dessner, it features guest appearances by some of Van Etten's most impressive peers, including Wye Oak, the Walkmen, and Beirut. The gifted songstress comes out west for a live show at the Greek, opening for the über-talented Andrew Bird.
