Vinyl LP pressing. 1998 release, the third full-length from the Alt-Country/Americana outfit. The Handsome Family were formed in 1993 by husband and wife duo Brett Sparks and Rennie Sparks along with drummer Mike Werner. The band, born and bred in Chicago before migrating to Albuquerque, play a unique blend of traditional Country, Bluegrass, and murder ballads. Rennie's lyrics have a strong storytelling component, drawing on themes from Gothic fiction, as well as American folk music, and often involving macabre subjects as murders, suicides and ghosts. THROUGH THE TREES was nominated by Mojo readers as one of the most important Americana CDs of the 1990s.
