Tramp is singer/songwriter Sharon Van Etten's third effort, and her debut offering for Jagjaguwar. Like Epic, its predecessor, the songwriter employs a full band. Tramp is so titled because during its recording, Van Etten was homeless, storing her possessions and crashing with friends for a few days or weeks at a time. The album was produced by the National's Aaron Dessner and recorded at his garage studio; he also plays slide guitar and bass. Other collaborators include the Walkmen's Matt Barrick (drums), Doveman's Thomas Bartlett (keys), Wye Oak's Jenn Wasner, and Julianna Barwick.
Magnet (p.60) - "TRAMP is an enveloping and engulfing album that rewards active and attentive listeners with songs of beauty, strength and emotional depth."
CMJ - "Van Etten finally has the full-bodied instrumental backing her voice deserves to become a truly propulsive power that opens wide, cuts deep and, when it needs to, rocks hard."
Billboard (p.60) - "[S]he can deliver the sass of Liz Phair with the soaring vocals of Neko Case....The singer's knack for melody and a winning lyric shines throughout..."
Pitchfork (Website) - "'Leonard' is a dreamy, abashed waltz; tickled by ukuleles and kicked along by a big bass drum..."
Uncut (magazine) (p.101) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Van Etten's voice has the impact of Florence Welch and the ruminative burr of Rufus Wainwright....A graceful, distinctive album."
