The Handsome Family, the New Mexican husband-wife Americana duo of Brett and Rennie Sparks, is visiting New Haven, Connecticut’s Cafe Nine on Saturday, June 22 in support of their new record, Wilderness, which also comes with a book of essays and artwork by Rennie.  This record, the most recent of nine studio releases, is devoted to creatures of all sorts; the songs are titled “Flies,” “Wildebeest,” “Gulls,” “Glow Worm” et. al.
