What’s a dramatic singer-songwriter got to do to get noticed if she’s Rufus Wainwright’s sister? After 2009’s live collection of Edith Piaf songs, Sans fusils, ni souliers, à Paris, the Lady Wainwright brought in twitchy producer/multi-instrumentalist Yuka Honda (Cibo Matto) and several of her friends (Sean Lennon, Jim White and Nels Cline) to execute a vexingly atmospheric sound; more provocative and aggressive yet theatrical than any full album the moody Martha has executed to date. Brava.
