Hey, all right! This is the first song I actually know from this fascinating playlist. Now I feel like one of the cool kids! - Michael Bird (N. Chief)

Wow, that's not what I expected--I always believed that the Handsome Family was glammish power pop.

I liked that, though--sounds like it could be on the soundtrack to a Coen Bros movie.

The Coen Bros should!

That's very much Handsome Family. Rennie Sparks writes spooky lyrics, Brett sings chillingly (& wonderfully, I think); a kind of ghost-town Americana.
