Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling – Questions are a Burden to Others. Self-released, 2011.

Two weeks ago, I reviewed the Prisoner-inspired band Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling’s 1st EP, The New Number 2. If you haven’t read that review, SPOILER ALERT: the album is awesome.

Anyway, before I had time to say “be seeing you,” DNFMOMD have released the second of their three planned EPs, Questions Are a Burden to Others. Now, reviewing an album that is right after the last album is tough. DNFMOMD sound pretty much like they did on the last album: alternating between loud and quiet, kind of sexy, kind of paranoid. This is a good thing, mind you, and not a criticism. This feels like a part of a series.

This EP is more complex, lyrically. The previous one had a lot of repeated refrains, while this one seems to have more to say. It still has that whole everyone-is-out-to-get-you vibe (In “The General,” bassist Michael Epstein sings, “There is an eye and it watches what you do/Try to hide but it will follow you”). Still, on the whole, Questions is loud, minimalistic, and awesome.

You can get Questions are a Burden to Others at Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling’s Website. And you should do it because you are being watched.
