The amiable married couple, Brett and Rennie Sparks, are the Handsome Family: a true American-gothic country & western duo, albeit with some very indie roots. Brett's the nasally Burl Ives-y crooner (as well as guitarist/keyboardist) and Rennie's the witty lyricist (bassist/vocalist) spinning dark and twisted tales with a strong metaphysical/paranormal bent. Their most recent album, Honey Moon, excels at another Family favorite theme: murder balladry. With Marissa Nadler.
