Rising out of the shadowy forest, & up into a world of gypsy moths, circling crows, & seeds in the wind. Fireflies in the summer night, rocks rolling uphill, clothes thrown in the snow, whispering waves, & milky moonlight all find themselves circling the night sky of the Handsome Family\'s latest effort. Murder & love, terror & serenity, sadness & joy— all of these feelings float like leaves lingering a moment within the tracks of In the Air. It exudes the fragile beauty of handwoven lace covering the bloody corpse of your long lost love who\'s been disemboweled by a wolf pack; a record that doesn\'t shy away from the essential bittersweetness of human life.
