THIS MORTAL FARCE

An EP by Eric Anders and Mark O'Bitz

Released October 30, 2020

We went into the studio to record American Bardo with sixteen songs expecting some of them not to proceed past the recording stage.  All of them proceeded past the recording stage and so we put all the songs with lyrics directly related to Lincoln in the Bardo on American Bardo (12 songs) and the remaining four were put on this EP, This Mortal Farce.

"...amazing songwriting duo... very well written, produced and arranged set of tunes... [the songs are] lush and the melodies are fantastic, the lyrics are great and the tunes are overall mellow but also very complex."

- Garth Thomas, The Hollywood Digest

Produced and Mixed by Mike Butler
Mastered by Jamal Ruhe
Cover Design by Ileana Hernandez and Eric Anders
Cover Watercolor Painting by Lilah Anders

PRAISE

"[This Mortal Farce] comes with four marvelous numbers. [The EP] kicks off with... “There’s No Changin’"... [and] the track is epic. “Comes And Goes” is an all out inspiring and totally different experience. “Old Eyes” keeps the EP grounded with a most lovely acoustic track. [And] “Seen So Much”... ultimately helps define This Mortal Farce."

- Mark Druery, Indie Shark

"...exquisite tracks that crossover from Americana to other forms of alternative rock and country, grounded with an acoustic heavy sound and technically proficient engineering/production. ...hypnotic and addicting... this EP is remarkably good [and] leave[s] you wanting more."

- Mindy McCall, Indie Pulse Music

"[This Mortal Farce] is a compelling call to reflect on life. ...cool, emotional and stand-alone collection... themes that so clearly relate to today’s situation(s)."

- John Daly, East Coast Rocker

"...moody, dreamy textures... plenty of Americana... and quite a bit of Neil Young... these four pieces are strong."

- Gary Hill, Music Street Journal

"...amazing songwriting duo... very well written, produced and arranged set of tunes... [the songs are] lush and the melodies are fantastic, the lyrics are great and the tunes are overall mellow but also very complex."
