Singer/songwriter Martha Wainwright’s second full-length I Know You’re Married But I’ve Got Feelings Too, picks up where her 2005 self-titled debut left off and then takes a big leap forward. Love is still a sticky situation, full of more barbed lows than euphoric highs. The song titles themselves (“Bleeding All Over You,” “You Cheated Me,” and “Love Is A Stranger”) read like taglines for tales of women scorned. Lucky for Wainwright, the daughter of a musical dynasty that includes brother Rufus Wainwright and parents Loudon Wainwright III and Kate McGarrigle, her feisty take on heartbreak is backed up with a pulsing production and clever lyrics that keep the album fresh and exciting. Switching between raw heartbreak and airy sweetness, Wainwright has more than bettered her first effort and will leave you dreaming of what she has in store for #3. The album also includes a wonderful brightened up cover of Pink Floyd’s “See Emily Play.”
