Dunno. What about The Gun Club?

Try "Satisfied Mind" by The Walkabouts.
It's a cover album, with both traditional folk and country songs, and modern stuff (Nick Cave, John Cale...) turned 'traditional'. I find it one of the best folk albums I've ever heard.

Have you heard Violent Femmes' second album, "Hallowed Ground"? That could do, too.

Wow - Great thread. I'm a longtime fan of the Handsome Family but I didn't know this was a genre unto itself. Thanks for all the recommendations to check out.

Continuing going slowly through the bands in this thread I got Days Into Years by Elliott Brood. The first couple times I tried to listen to it I wasn't in the right mood, but today I was. Very good stuff.

It took me longer to get into Days Into Years than I anticipated, but I do like the progression of their sound across their 3 studio albums. Mountain Meadows still has to be my favorite of the three and largely because it seems to largely abandon the darker imagery in the songs and makes room for something more. I mean the album is pretty dark as it's a reference to the mountain meadows massacre, but the songs weren't just rehashes of the first half of Ambassador.

I'm glad you're enjoying it though. Apparently a lot of the inspiration for the album came from visiting monuments and graveyards for WW1 and WW2 soldiers in France.

I really wish 16 Horsepower would do a reunion tour, it's almost been 10 years since they broke up and I'm so in love with their music right now it's borderline psychotic.

Has Murder By Death by mentioned in this thread yet? If not, they are definitely worth checking out.

I'm going to have to browse through this thread for some recommendations I've missed.

I just saw them in concert a month or so ago opening for Man Man. They were pretty good live, I may have to give one of their albums a listen at some point.

They're another group I've been meaning to look up for awhile.
