iTunes Review

As someone who’s lived longer than his father, Loudon Wainwright III contemplates mortality more than the usual singer/songwriter. Here, master banjoist Tony Trischka joins Wainwright, along with saxophonist Steve Elson (David Bowie, Radiohead), drummer Sammy Merendino (Michael Jackson, Lou Reed), and bassist Tim Luntzel (Rosanne Cash, Bright Eyes). Small band performances such as “I Knew Your Mother,” “Depression Blues,” and “I’ll Be Killing You (This Christmas)” help demonstrate Wainwright’s irony, sarcasm, amusement, and anger. Yet there’s nothing like hearing the songs at their subtle best, like the touching ballad “In a Hurry.”

Can't Keep A Good Man Down

Dang it! Now I can't get that Man and Dog song out of my head. I'll have to buy the whole forking album! Not that there's anything wrong with that.
