Ever since her official debut in 2009, the heart-breakingly intimate <em>Because I Was In Love</em>, Van Etten has been expanding her sound and adding grit to her delivery.<p>Van Etten's third album, the transfixing <em>Tramp</em>, came out in February. Van Etten still sings of heartbreak, lost chances and first kisses, but the overall tone is more triumphant and defiant.

Van Etten's new record, <em>Tramp,</em> is full of repeated riffs, drones and phonemes, and they're more intense and emotionally packed than ever.
