The new Handsome Family release,
Last Days of Wonder, gets Five Loaves of Rye (5/5). Flapping Your Broken Wings has been in heavy rotation over at KALX.
"Boiled down to its essence, one could say the album is about death and air travel, which are seemingly everywhere on Last Days."
"...the Handsome Family, as the country music equivalent of Edward Gorey, mine more from the combination of darkness and levity than from either on its own."
