Eric Anders and Mark O’Bitz – “Bury Me”


Eric Anders and Mark O’Bitz have provided a number of enjoyable collaborations in the past few years, featured with tracks like “Hold On to Me” and “Matterbloomlight.” Their latest joint venture is a twelve-song concept album, American Bardo, inspired by George Saunders’ Mann-Booker-Prize-winning novel, Lincoln in the Bardo. Each song represents a “reading” related to one of the novel’s characters. Among the many touching tracks is “Bury Me,” a forlorn folk effort with graceful strings and stirring vocals. “Bury me, with the love that I know / It keeps me alive, say goodbye,” the vocals resonate. The album shows rousing forms of rock and folk throughout, ranging from the somber reflective nature of “Bury Me” to the soaring rock of “Old Theory of Love.”
