The Handsome Family (songwriting and marriage partners Brett and Rennie Sparks) have been defining the dark end of americana for over 30 years. Brett writes the music and Rennie writes the words. Their work has been covered by many artists including Jeff Tweedy, Andrew Bird and most-recently Phoebe Bridgers. Their song “Far From Any Road” was the opening theme for HBO’s True Detective season one and still receives thousands of Shazams every week from all over the world.

Their eleventh studio album, Hollow (out now on Loose) delves into the natural world at the edges of the man-made. It is a record lush with leaves and shadows and echoing with occult mystery.

‘You can set your watch by their reliably weird charm’   The Skinny

Support from Frontier Ruckus

Since the release of their 2008 debut album, the songs of Frontier Ruckus have delivered a singularly detailed representation of the glorious yet grim minutiae of Midwestern suburban life. The obsessively crafted lyrical world of songwriter Matthew Milia is brought to life by David Jones and Zachary Nichols whose instrumental contributions serve as colorfully instinctive extensions. From stages at Lollapalooza and Bonnaroo to the intimate living rooms of fans, this magnetic chemistry has helped Frontier Ruckus garner a dedicated following across the United States and Europe. The band now preps their 6th album for release to highly anticipating fans everywhere — promising more of the magic that led AllMusic to deem Frontier Ruckus:

“Their songs are full of rich, rural details: frozen lakes, swaying trees, highway lights glowing in the deep night.” Rolling Stone

“…piercingly sincere portraits of romance and youth, ripe with close harmonies and meditations on complicated, tender love.” CMJ
