In The Air is the fifth album released by alternative country band The Handsome Family. It was released in 2000 by Carrot Top Records North America, Loose Music Europe and comes as an enhanced audio CD with an additional video for the song Amelia Earhart vs. The Dancing Bear, from Milk and Scissors directed by Bill Ward. All music by Brett Sparks, all lyrics by Rennie Sparks. Don't Be Scared 2:39. The Sad Milkman 3:40. In The Air 3:30. A Beautiful Thing 3:39. The Handsome Family. In the Air. The difference between In the Air and the Handsome Family's last album seems to be the presence of a calm as opposed to disturbed restraint and a certain warmth pervading this album. Brett Sparks' vocal delivery comes across as more relaxed and natural and in lieu of the occasional, creepy vocal effects used on the last album. Album 2000 11 Songs. The Sad Milkman.

Solid album but something is missing compared to their previous the lyrics still have some gothic undertones the music rarely matches them. When they do, like on Poor, Poor Lenore, those moments become standouts. So you couldnt say the songs arent as well written as before, just that the atmosphere isnt quite as inviting at least for me. Yes, we're the band that did the theme song for True Detective Season 1. CDs & Other Merch at. Not Now. The oldest living band in America. Established 1886,. Sourers of milk. Destroyers of entire fields of corn. Wear protective eye-gear. Do not dispose of in. BrettThe difference between In the Air and the Handsome Family's last album seems to be the presence of a calm as opposed to disturbed restraint and a certain warmth pervading this album. If their last album, Through the Trees, came to us from the darkness at the bottom of a well or a liquor bottle, In the Air is the sound of the Handsome Family after they made it out of the depths and up onto the grass and are now adjusting to a less desperate life. Not to say that it's sunny. Play jigsaw puzzles for free Home. In the Air, 2000. Dont Be Scared, 02:39. The Sad Milkman, 03:39. In the Air, 03:30. A Beautiful Thing, 03:39. So Much Wine, 03:48
