Video: The Handsome Family “Eels”

It’s retro-Friday, which means dipping into the archives to find something brilliant to start your weekend.  This week, we turn to Americana legends The Handsome Family and their ninth studio album: 2013’s ‘Wilderness’.  The married duo, Brett and Rennie Sparks, are known for their mysterious, literary, obscure roots music and this album was one of their most fascinating in terms of themes and lyrics.  The wilderness…the wildness…the sense of ancient otherness.  This is a melodious, vocal beauty.

From up north but now hiding in rural Suffolk. An insomniac music-lover. Love discovering new music to get lost in - country, singer-songwriters, Americana, rock...whatever. Currently enjoying Lukas Nelson, Midland, Jarrod Dickenson.
