The daughter of Loudon Wainwright III and Kate McGarrigle, and brother to Rufus, Martha Wainwright is the unsung dynamo of her bountiful family tree. “Bloody Mother Fucking Asshole” off the singer-songwriter’s 2005 debut—which sounds suspiciously like any number of classic Loudon tracks—is one of the best parental kiss-offs in recorded history. (And it makes her brother’s similarly melodramatic “Dinner at Eight” seem like a Father’s Day e-card by comparison.) The artist’s latest release, last year’s Goodnight City, touches on everything from indie rock to Edith Piaf, affirming Wainwright’s position as one of the most adept and eclectic songwriters in modern folk.
