The Handsome Family, Wildewood

BRANDON WIDDER
9 pm., Saturday November 09 | $13.
Doug Fir Lounge
830 E Burnside St.
 
[WELL-READ AMERICANA] It’s difficult to write a song about an octopus without being compared to Ringo Starr. The Handsome Family’s “Octopus,” however, isn’t the same beast. Like all the songs on the husband-and-wife Americana duo’s most recent effort, Wilderness, it’s less shallow and inviting, swimming with Brett Sparks’ oaky drawl and Rennie Sparks’ dense, lyrical storytelling. Other fiddle-strewn cuts on the album—each named after a different critter—waltz intimately with the same mid-tempo, countrified balladry that marked the Albuquerque couple’s nine previous albums, gently reminding you man’s place in nature is a fickle one.
