Through The Trees

I read somewhere recently that a deluxe 20th Anniversary version of Through the Trees by The Handsome Family is shortly to be released.
20 year anniversary versions of American albums? Who would have thunk it? God, that makes me feel old

The Handsome Family are one of these American bands who are at least as popular, if not more so on this side of the Pond..
They are constantly visiting these shores and have a tour coming up in March
If you haven't seen them it is one to tick off your bucket list. I've seen them a couple of times and they don't disappoint. The music may be dark but Brett and Renee's patter is always highly entertaining

The Handsome Family - Weightless Again

The Handsome Family - Cathedrals


  1. At times Cathedrals is one of the ten finest songs ever recorded. Today is one of those times

  2. I think you're right on about being more popular in your neck of the woods. An old pal of mine from Chicago went all the way to Ireland just to see them.

  3. I'll be going to see them on that March tour. Thanks for being their warm-up man.

  4. 20 years of the Handsome Family makes me feel very old too. What a great band.
