B.W.'s PLAYLIST/ KHSU, 90.5/ SAT., 4 FEB. 2012

The extremely talented singer/songwriter, who is based in Brooklyn (i.e. couch surfing), made a breakthrough with her previous 2010 release, epic. Now, after two years of constant touring, Van Etten has amassed an impressive collection of songs for new release, Tramp, released by Jagjaguwar. Here she is slowly moving beyond her tribulations over love & heartache, but most importantly, she has stepped up her overall songwriting and craft. The second half of this record, in particular, just soars.
