Singing Bones

Album: Singing Bones

Artist/Group: Handsome Family

Label: Loose

Reviewer: Duncan Walker

Rating (out of 10): 7


Husband and wife duo, Brett and Reenie Sparks have produced another great album in Singing Bones.

The songs are haunting and somewhat austere, but touched with a dash of humour. Dealing with the darker aspects of life but with a sense of magical realism, the songs can be strangely uplifting. As if by showing the darkness they are in effect highlighting the good things in life.
