Some Cheerful Tunes to Start Your Week .... Not
Sometimes when you are looking for inspiration for a post it can come from fairly obvious places.
George commented on my recent Original Harmony Ridge Creekdippers post that Elijah put him in mind of The Handsome Family.
This got me thinking that the husband and wife pairing of Brett and Rennie Sparks were due an airing.
Wiki describes there music as a blend of traditional country, bluegrass and murder ballads and that is good enough for me.
The first song featured The Sad Milkman is taken from their 2000 album In The Air on Carrot Top/lLoose Records.
The second is their contribution to Down to the Promised Land the compilation album from the same year celebrating the first five years of Bloodshot Records.
Your week can only get more cheerful!
