8/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 14th November 2014
Husband and wife duo Brett & Rennie Sparks aka The Handsome Family have been making mournful, melancholic yet beautiful music for twenty-one years now. “Wilderness” is their ninth studio album.
“Wilderness” is a concept album about nature (really?) with every track named after animals. It is laden with gentle melodies and velvety harmonies. The track that really stands out among the bar room country sounds is “Octopus” with its jovial beat, catchy melody and 7th chords they are in danger of sounding like the Beatles. Also, the first line flies very close to “Sunny Afternoon” by the Kinks before swerving off in another direction.
If you like a bit of alt country, you’ll like this. Nice.
