Far From Any Road – Song Of The Day

The Handsome Family

Although The Handsome Family have been around since the early 90’s, it’s only through the success of recent, highly acclaimed HBO series True Detective that they popped up on everyone’s radar in a big way this year. Their dark, atmospheric track “Far From Any Road” is used in the gorgeous opening title sequence of the show and it’s a gloomy yet totally enjoyable murder ballad worthy of some of Nick Cave‘s best work. You’ll find the song on their 2003 album Singing Bones.
