Sharon Van Etten "Tramp"

Just listened to it on NPR's first listen. I'd heard part of a song on the radio here in dirty jersey, shazam'ed it, and I'm now not being disappointed. Really really good songs with nice varied arrangements. I like her voice, it's not typically indie twee, or screamy, it's quite strong, almost cat power-strong. She's depressingly young--yes, I'm bitter and jealous. This sounds like what a "mature" record would sound like if calling something "mature" wasn't usually implying that it was boring and lame. The song "We Are Fine" is a highlight.
