Art of the Song / Standing "O" Podcast

Our guest this week on the Art of the Song Coffeehouse Podcast is spiritual musician, songwriter The Handsome Family.

Our guests this week on Art of the Song are Brett and Rennie Sparks, together known as the Handsome Family. The Husband and wife duo experienced unexpected worldwide fame when their song "Far From Any Road" was picked as the season 1 theme song for the HBO hit show, True Detective. Their songs have been covered by artists including Jeff Tweedy, Amanda Palmer, and Andrew Bird (who released an entire record of Handsome Family covers). With their unique mix of country instrumentation and intriguing surrealist lyricism, their music explores the unseen stories, people, and places of the American West. We spoke with Rennie and Brett in our Albuquerque studios.
