Well at least from what I've heard, I like her music a lot more than her brother's. What songs do you like on the self titled?

I never liked Rufus much, but his last album is pretty damn good. Martha, I always heard, was nothing compared to her brother, which really didn't make me rush to check it out.

I heard a few tracks and liked them though, not heard the new album but it's nice to see some more people disagree with the Rufus golden boy theory.

I take it back.

I believe Louden Wainwright is what it's all about.

She's on the Drowned In Sound label in the UK, right? I was at college with the guy who owns that label and he used to give me album reviews, printed out from the college computers. Damnit, I haven't even has a full-time job yet and he's running a label!

Martha's songs are pretty good. Her voice is excellent, and comparing it to Rufus Wainwright, I definitely prefer Martha for both songwriting and singing over Rufus (he's just drones and drones, higher pitched droning is still droning.)

I definitely like Martha better than Rufus in all aspects. Her smoker's lung singing is just a bit sexier than his.
