The Handsome Family is an alternative country and americana band, formed in Chicago, Illinois, and currently based in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The band was formed in 1993 by husband-and-wife duo Brett Sparks (vocals, guitar, keyboards) and Rennie Sparks (bass, banjo, vocals), along with drummer Mike Werner. Their third full-length album, Through the Trees, was written in the aftermath of these events, and included a song inspired by Brett's experiences in the psychiatric unit. The album was recorded in 1998, using Jeff Tweedy's mobile studio, and brought the band to a wider audience. It was named the "Best New Country Album of the Year" by UNCUT. A growing following and raised profile allowed Brett and Rennie to give up their day jobs and work on the band full-time. They toured America and Europe again in support of the 2000 album In the Air.

Album Through the Trees. Weightless Again Lyrics. We stopped for coffee in the redwood forest Giant dripping leaves, spoons of powdered cream. I wanted to kiss you, but I wasn't sure how Like those Indians lost in the rain forest. Forced to drag burning wood wherever they went They had all forgotten how to start a fire. This is why people OD on pills And jump from the Golden Gate Bridge Anything to feel weightless again. Those poor lost Indians when the white man found them Most died of TB, the rest went insane. 4. Where The Birch Trees Lean. 6. Down In The Ground.

For The Handsome Family, the duality of life and death means the Grim Reaper is an ever present: in the form of the twin sister killed by a snake in the affecting, ‘My Sister’s Tiny Hands’ – but even in death new life is born – as demonstrated by the orange lizards which pour forth from the bleached horse’s head in the song . But no matter: ‘Through The Trees’ will comfortably survive a further 20 years’ listening because not only is the album’s subject matter timeless, but it’s also freighted with sufficient humour, pathos, and musicality to appeal to another generation of music fans.
