Stream New Handsome Fm. Album2013-05-14 by Star-Spangled Kid | 3 Comments
|Americana / alt-country duo The Handsome Family - 20 years into their musical journey - have a new album titled Wilderness, which was released on this very day, May 14 of 2013, by Carrot Top Records.|
The fine folks at NPR have made available for streaming this lovely record about the beasts of land and sea that flutter around the conscious (or subconscious I guess, I never got a good feel for that Freudian shit) mind of humanity, haunting and mesmerizing us.

This btw guys is a great record if you're into folk music or creepy animals you owe it to yourself to give it a shot. "Octopus" is probably the best song (although "Frogs" and "Caterpillars" come pretty close) and in their review of the album the avclub compared said song to The Call of Cthulhu.
Great band, and highly underrated. I haven't listened to the whole thing yet but I certainly need to.
Only read Handsome and thought HBMS had new stuff. Now I'm sad...
