20 Best Albums of 2012: #19

19. Martha Wainwright, Come Home to Mama
 
Martha Wainwright had two very potent sources of inspiration available for Come Home to Mama: the birth of her first child and the passing away of her mother. Wainwright’s emotions emerge as a sort of wry candour which surfaces throughout the record. Producer Yuka Honda creates a velvety sonic backdrop on which songs like the astonishing “Radio Star,” which changes tempos and moods at a rapid pace, can unfold.
