Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling

Minimalist Rock is Art - Today we delve into Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling - a Boston duo inspired by the '60s cult spy-fi TV series The Prisoner. Sophia Cacciola, drums & vocals (formerly of Blitzkriegbliss!) has paired with Michael Epstein bass (front man of underground indie pop faves The Motion Sick) flex their cerebral muscle on this new project: the couple (who are married in real life) are releasing albums as "episodes" on their website - mirroring the spy v. spy television show. Let's hope all this excitement doesn't get somebody killed.

The duo plod along - smoothly at first. But soon, as the music heads to midnight, Cacciola's sultry voice changes takes a turn - and she howls from behind the drums. Epstein's guitar/bass rig is fully taxed - the sound is sometimes visceral and aggressive; there is no doubt, it is completely alive.

Thinking Man's Art - This project is just ridiculously cool. The Prisoner already has a cult audience and many of those learning about Do Not Forsake Me are following the band's exploits online. - Do yourself a favor and download the self released episodes. The dynamic duo are winning loyal fans with their sound and the mythos of recreating the television past... One spy story at a time. This is definitely One to Watch in 2010.

live this week in Boston!
