The latest, and third, single from the new album ‘Hollow‘ by The Handsome Family is a warm and vibrant number that seems to embrace the world and positivity and just the wondrous nature of life.  Is this really The Handsome Family?  Well, yes it is, there might be a twist towards the end, and a further twist just a wee moment beyond that the combination of which puts the song in a different light.  It still sounds deliciously seductive, but it’s just possible that deliciously seductive thing are not always to be embraced.

Hollow‘ is out September 8th on Loose Records.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
