Martha Wainwright, AroarA

9 pm., Tuesday March 12 | $14 advance, $15 day of show.
Doug Fir Lounge
830 E Burnside St.

[SINGER-SONGWRITER] Undeniably talented singer-songwriter scion Martha Wainwright has struggled to define her musical identity as clearly as others in her gifted family…until now. Come Home to Mama is her strongest album yet, showing a confident stylistic grip and mastery of her singular voice. Musical variation abounds, from the cascading guitars of “Radio Star” to the pointillist keyboards of “Four Black Sheep.” The album provides a lovely setting for its true jewel: Wainwright’s heartbreaking rendering of her late mother Kate McGarrigle’s final composition. “Proserpina” has a circular melody conveying an ancient tale of loss (the title character is the Roman analog of Persephone), though the mythical mother’s longing for her daughter is sadly reversed here.
