Editorial Reviews

2009 release, their eighth studio album overall. Honey Moon takes place under bowed branches and deep within winding corn mazes. The release celebrates the duo's 20th year of marriage with a series of love songs that sharply contrast the dark themes of their previous seven albums. Full of an awed sense of emotion in the face of nature's mysteries, Brett Sparks (music) and Rennie Sparks (lyrics) branch from their usual canon of the dark and mysterious on Honey Moon, to establish a theme rooted in the tradition of 19th century romanticism. For the first time there is no body count. It is an album of transcendence, of touching the divine, if only for a moment, through our love of someone else, even if he is a katydid.

Rennie Sparks is a poet and Brett Sparks, her husband of 20 years, brings her poetry to life in the form of music. Together they are "Handsome Family" (handsomefamily.com). This song writing duo, possess a chemistry this writer would find very difficult to match.

From the opening track, `Linger, Let Me Linger', we are drawn into their love for each other. The comparisons of their devotion to one another, "I am puddles in the street, waiting for your falling leaves", draw us a picture of what it is like to live in their gothic, alternative country world of words and music. The lyrics to this tune tell us a lot about the duo. They are truly devoted to one another. The rhythmic, almost fifties, Floyd Cramerish sounding tinkering of the piano adds a David Lynchian quality, along with the somber sound of the cello bring it all together.

On the very next track, `Little Sparrows', we are drawn in by an intensely traditional, country sounding, pedal steel guitar (the pedal steel guitar gets me every time). The rhythm of this song is also very traditional. The lyrics, however, are not. In this song they compare their love for each other to absolutely everything. "Oh, you paper cups rolling down the windy street Oh, you little ants winding through the tangled weeds Where you're going I don't care, take me with you when you go". Devotion to one another is the theme, and by the end of the tune there is no question as to this devotion.

The fifth track on the record, and my personal favorite is, `The Loneliness of Magnets'. In this tune we are lured in by a soft snare and bass drum, closely followed by the whistling melody of the song and finally, Brett Sparks showing his baritone voice's range. The song has a very 1920's ragtime rhythm quality to it.

From the first time I heard Handsome Family songs I have been mesmerized.... I'm dreaming awake now...

The pace of these songs does something to slow down the rush of time and make each moment one to ponder.

The heart-felt and melancholy tunes mixed with odd-ball yet stunning lyrics will stick in your brain and come back days later.... The way they paint the pictures with words and music will have you looking at every scene in your lifetime as an epic moment to remember! You wonder are these people offering humor or straight painful reality... Either way you win.

Yeah, I like them.

I'm no music expert, just goin' with instict here. I really can't think of anyone they remind me of, just a one of a kind sound!
