Loudon Wainwright III

Americana, Pop, Rock, Singer-Songwriter

With acerbic wit and self-lacerating candor, Loudon Wainwright III has been probing his colorful, dysfunctional personal and family life for the last half century. His just-released Years In The Making compiles unreleased visual and audio oddities, spanning the decades and assembled from live, radio, demo, bootleg, and studio material; the collection polishes LWIII’s rep as a hilariously twisted narcissist and clever satirist via extreme minutiae, foibles, trysts, and existential frights. Most telling tracks: “Meet The Wainwrights,” starring cad dad and his riven kin, and the poli-sci-fried “It Ain’t Gaza.” Swanny Rose opens.
