Woohoo! The Handsome Family has chosen to come to Perth in their Australian Tour. Great gothic/new country/blue-grass/Cormac McCarthyism style songs. Can't wait to see them this Sunday at the Rosemount Hotel, 6.00pm.

THE HANDSOME FAMILY consists of Brett Sparks (music) and Rennie Sparks (lyrics/also a poet) who live in Albuquerque, New Mexico. They consider their songs Romantic in the 19th century sense of the word: full of an awed sense of emotion in the face of nature’s mysteries. They wrote their eighth CD, Honey Moon (releasing April, 2009 to celebrate their twentieth year of marriage). As a fan of new-country including Patty Griffin, Alison Krauss, etc, I was taken by their music & style when they were featured on a film called Searching for the Wrong-Eyed Jesus. In this film, their haunting lyrics convey the deep south of America. I have their new CD Honey Moon and hopefully I can purchase their other albums on Sunday night. Listen to Linger, Let me Linger here at Friday Download
