Erik's musical Advent calendar - December 19

The Handsome Family - So Much Wine

Husband and wife duo The Handsome Family a.k.a. Brett and Rennie Sparks, finally got their fair share of recognition when their song "Far From Any Road" was picked as the theme song for the awesome HBO series True Detective. "So Much Wine" (from 2000's In The Air) is their dark stab at a Christmas song, revolving around a disenchanted couple whose relationship is a violent, drunken mess. So today it's not about misteltoe and holly in my musical Advent calendar, rather the complete opposite, but it's a really good song, and sadly, this is also what Christmas can be. I promise a far more upbeat song tomorrow.
