Adrienne Lenker Steals Our Hearts - Again !
Big Thief have just announced a second album for 2019 - along with a single!
Following the release of the criticaly acclaimed UFOF in May of this year, the Brooklyn-based quartet has announced a second record for 2019, titled Two Hands, due October 11th through 4AD. Along with that announcement, the raucous yet tender single, Not, was published on their social media channels. If it's reflective of what's yet to be released, Not seems to indicate a return to the raw, garage-folk formula from Masterpiece (2016) and Capacity (2017). According to a press release, the new album was recorded in El Paso, Texas, and its themes reflect that dry, dusty environment, in the same way its predecessor reflected the lush Washington forest in which it was created. Rough-edged guitars and Lenker's mournful, plaintive voice are center-stage - but we've said enough. Have a listen below!
