I Know You're Married But I Have Feelings Too
& lt;span class= & quot;dropcap & quot; & M & lt;/span & artha Wainwright comes from a musical dynasty. You might have heard of her father, Loudon, or her brother, Rufus, or her mother, Kate McGarrigle, or her... well, you get it. She's Canadian-American musical royalty. But it'd be criminal to think of her as a low-hanging branch on a family tree. She's a sturdy sapling growing a bit further down the way. With her second record, I Know You're Married But I Have Feelings Too, however, she's still working in the family business: caustic, bitter songs about unfaithful lovers and shattered romantic expectations. Nursing a definite Kate Bush fascination, Wainwright's voice is an impressive instrument, equal parts catty mewling and all-out belting. Her lyrics are earnest, if a bit melodramatic, but the conceit wears on the listener after a while, especially when the music doesn't vary too much beyond slightly orchestrated acoustic guitar. Fifty minutes of "Why can't I have you?" can't avoid attrition forever.
