UNDERRATED: Sharon Van Etten's "Tramp"

With a gently scuffed, quavering voice, this singer-songwriter reached new heights with her new album, which is titled in reference to her period of semi-homelessness. Produced by the National's Aaron Dessner, the record is a quietly addictive listen with Van Etten's lyrics on heartache and uncertainty landing with such disarming rawness that you sometimes wonder if she's sharing too much -- yet you can't help wanting more.
