    For the most part, the production serves to accent rather than overwhelm Van Etten's greatest asset, her voice.

    Though it rarely rises above a whisper, Van Etten's captivating vocals and Dessner's subtle production ensure that Tramp is never remotely sleepy.

    A gorgeous, fully realized expression of her potential.
