In less than a week you'll be able to purchase, from those lovely boys down at Amoeba, the new album of original material by Martha Wainwright.
If you haven't made her acquaintance yet, your time has come.
Martha Wainwright is a songwriter par excellence with mercurial, jazzy vocals and a punk/folk sensibility. She's part enchantress, part coquette, part showstopper. Born into Canadian folk and raised on Cyndi Lauper and Prince, her range is almost as impressive as her ear and her knack for songwriting. It's time you got to know her. Her EPs and small releases have been trickling in since the late 1990's; her first full-length debut was her eponymous LP (which followed an eponymous EP), followed by "I Know You're Married But I Have Feelings Too," and an album of Edith Piaf songs titled "Martha Wainwright's Edith Piaf Record." We also highly, highly recommend the "Factory" EP and "Bloody Motherfucking Asshole."
Never miss a story.
