Martha Wainwright

Bloody Mother Fucking Asshole (Zoe Records)

Genius rarely runs in the family. Jakob Dylan canít hold a candle to his dadís work without going up in flames, and itís best not to even think about Wilson Phillips. Fortunately, the daughter of Loudon Wainwright III and Kate McGarrigle is an anomaly. Martha Wainwright plays unique, captivating, rock-ous music built on the family tradition of drama, humor and introspection. While her raw intensity makes comparisons to other folk-rock grrrls inevitable, thereís more Morrissey than Morissette on Bloody Mother Fucking Asshole, Wainwrightís mature, honest debut. The unexpectedly subtle title track showcases her no-frills strum, lyrical wit and nimble pipes. The spare, secular gospel of ďI Will Internalize,Ē the Buckley-esque lament ďItís OverĒ and the catchy ďHow SoonĒ further prove that Rufusí little sister can back up her name-brand lineage with originality, versatility and range.
