Terminus

The Handsome Family is de groep rond het koppel Brett en Rennie Sparks die er al ruim tien jaar in slagen om op albums als ´Through the Trees´ en ´In The Air´ (met gastbijdragen van Andrew Bird en Wilco´s Jeff Tweedy) de moeilijke middenweg te bewandelen tussen traditionele bluegrass en alt.country. Murderballads, daarin hebben ze zich gespecialiseerd, wat ook weer te horen is op de recentste plaat ´Last Days Of Wonder´. Live als trio.www.myspace.com/thehandsomefamily Nathalie Delcroix (Laïs) en Bjorn Eriksson (Zita Swoon, Admiral Freebee) hebben de handen in elkaar geslaan om hun gezamenlijke liefde voor oude bluegrass en country standards van Hank Williams, Lefty Frizzell en Bill Monroe  te bezingen. The Partchesz heet het project eigenlijk, en er is een plaat van uit. Voor de gelegenheid doen ze het in duo, twee stemmen en één gitaar.www.myspace.com/thepartcheszBIOGRAPHY THE HANDSOME FAMILYTHE HANDOME FAMILY is Brett and Rennie Sparks who live in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Their seventh CD, Last Days of Wonder (June. 2006) was one of Mojo´s top ten American Albums for 2006 and called “an unqualified triumph” by Uncut. Of their sixth CD, Singing Bones, The UK´s Independent wrote, “Rarely, even in the fatalistic world of country music, has the precarious mystery of mortality been captured with such poetic grace as on Singing Bones.”They have appeared in the movie, I´m Your Man (2005), a tribute to Leonard Cohen as well as Searching for the Wrong-Eyed Jesus (2004). In 2004, a reader´s poll in Mojo named The Handsome Family´s third CD, Through the Trees one of the ten essential Americana records.Last Days of Wonder is a collection of love songs sung in airports, garbage dumps, drive-thru windows and shark-infested waters. The CD celebrates the little miraculous moments of beauty found in everyday life: a golf course shining in the rain, hanging lights bouncing in the breeze, pigeons singing from billboards, trees blooming in squares of dirt. The songs linger on those moments when we´re pulled from the ordinary to feel awed by mystery, bewildered by beauty, terrified by the vast unknowable around us (whether we wander through shady groves or crowded parking lots).Brett Sparks, who writes the music, draws from medieval melody, country-politan string arrangements, tin-pan alley crooners, and dusty hillbilly records to weave together the fabric of this record. Rennie Sparks, who writes the lyrics, makes magical realism from polar adventure stories, pagan hunting songs and her own time spent (like most people) riding up elevators, staring out hotel room windows, and driving interstate highways. The entire album was recorded over a year´s time in the converted garage studio at the back of the Sparks´ Albuquerque house. Brett recorded it all on a Mac and a whole mess of wires, microphones and little metal boxes. Alongside the usual guitar, bass and drums you will hear mellotrons, ukulele, banjo, bowed wine glasses, and trombone.Brett and Rennie (The Handsome Family) have been married for 18 years. In their live performances The Handsome Family are sometimes up to a six-piece band and sometimes just Brett and Rennie with (or without) a laptop computer.Words that in their everyday surrealism have no parallel in contemporary writing...Music that mines the deep veins of fatalism in the Appalachian voice — GREIL MARCUSAs songwriters it´s the eerie, ancestral voice of ´Anonymous´ they ultimately resemble the most —THE CHICAGO READERThis is music that moves forward by turning the clock back— haunting, primal and strangely heroic —THE LONDON TIMESDark, elemental, mischievous and mournful —MOJOKindamuzik over The Handsome Family
