DOWNLOAD: Marissa Nadler - River of Dirt (MP3)

The Handsome Family

The Handsome Family

Taking place under bowed branches and deep within winding corn mazes, The Handsome Family released their latest album, Honey Moon, through Carrot Top Records on April 14, 2009. Celebrating the duo's twentieth year of marriage and eighth studio release, the record plays out as a series of love songs that sharply contrast the dark themes of their previous seven releases.
Marissa Nadler also just put out a new album, Little Hells, on March 3rd on Kemado Records. An MP3 from that awesome record is posted above.

The two acts are touring together, and will play NYC's Highline Ballroom on Saturday, April 25th. Tickets are still on sale. We also have TEN pairs of tickets to give away.

Contest details, with all updated tour dates, below...

I've seen Marissa Nadler open for Akron Family and Deer Tick, each time the audience barely refrained from committing mass suicide or tearing her off stage. She's pure misery and so fuckin dreadful.

I'm going to have to agree, I've seen people wait outside of shows until she was done her set. How in the hell does she get so many gigs. I've never heard anyone give her praise.

you two are out of your mind. Little Hells is one of the albums of the year.

Regardless of Marissa Nadler, The Handsome Family is/are incredible live. Go to this show if you can.

Going to have to disagree. I've seen Nadler thrice and all those around me were seemingly captivated.

I've heard far, far worse than Nadler for an opening act.

to the emotionally challenged followers of Nadler, get a life ....she's lucky she's not sleeping in a homeless shelter, she sucks
