Ark: Loudon Wainwright III

Veteran singer-songwriter is known for his mordant, occasionally bitterly self-mocking, often poignant, and usually very funny original songs about himself, other people, and contemporary culture. His recent CDs include Strange Weirdos: Music from and Inspired by the Film "Knocked Up," a collection that provoked New Yorker reviewer Ben Greenman to observe that "[Wainwright] has not only retained his sharpness of wit but has also learned to cut with greater skill," and Haven't Got the Blues (Yet), his 2014 collection of wryly hilarious songs about the way lives fall to pieces. $25.
