Artist: Handsome Family
Description:
Personnel: Dave Gutierrez (guitar, steel guitar); Stephen Dorocke (guitar, lap steel guitar, violin); Eric Johnson (banjo); Darrell Sparks, Jason Toth (drums). Husband-and-wife team Brett and Rennie Sparks have been working as the Handsome Family since the mid-1990s, coming on like the Gomez and Morticia Adams of alt-country. On HONEY MOON, though, things lighten up a little bit in that the deliciously doomy lyrical themes of yore are often abandoned for something more fanciful, but the overall effect is nevertheless as appealingly quirky as ever. Rennie's songs are still full of odd, sometimes otherworldly occurrences, but there's a lilt to them that steers things clear of the pair's old haunts. And where Brett's deep, husky voice was once employed strictly for how-low-can-you-go Johnny Cash-isms, the graceful melodies of HONEY MOON take him in a more actively melodic direction, simultaneously allowing him to discover more expressiveness in his singing than ever before.

Editorial Reviews:
Spin (p.88) - "[They] continue to put a brilliantly surreal twist on everyday subjects, using nature imagery to evoke the weird intensity of all-consuming passions." Billboard (p.37) - "The music on their eighth studio album since forming in '93 -- a m?lange of classic-era Nashville, '50s Tin Pan Alley and doo-wop, and Memphis soul balladry..." Pitchfork (Website) - "[T]hey indulge the dark edges of these eccentric and personal songs....Even at its most ruminative, HONEY MOON sounds like a celebratory record, a document of the ups and downs that define any marriage." Clash (magazine) (p.109) - "[T]he brilliantly titled 'The Loneliness Of Magnets' has a grand, ambling, twilight feel to it with sandy drums and a cooing guitar."
