Nice! I loved that song live solo, and it sounds great in that arrangement too

So they're doing band version of a couple of the songs from abysskiss. Can't say I mind that.

It’s a beautiful song. I have to admit I’m not loving this meek/wispy approach to her vocals lately, which seems to be half performance and half production. Still psyched about the record.

It befits the spirit-like feel of the song, imo, like a ghost in static. But yeah, hope she’ll mix it up on the record.

I've become obsessed with this band & this record just in the past month as a result of this thread, and I'm miffed that "Objects" didn't get even a single vote. Lyrics to that one are kind of whatever, I'll grant; but musically, it reminds me a lot of Pinback, one of my favorite bands ever to do the indie rock thing

Figured it was time for a new thread. Two songs out. I like Cattails and love U.F.O.F. -- one of those songs you just play on repeat all morning and then it's in your head all day.

diamonddave85​​ (diamonddave85), Friday, 3 May 2019 20:02 (three months ago) link

I love this record. The only real dud for me is the baffling rework of From. And I think Cattails doesn’t totally fit and could maybe have been a single instead.

longtime caller, first time listener (man alive), Saturday, 4 May 2019 01:32 (three months ago) link

no the “from” arrangement is AMAZING

american bradass (BradNelson), Saturday, 4 May 2019 01:43 (three months ago) link

I also could do without their weird penchant for lo budget sound fx. There’s one that sounds like someone drinking the very end of a slurped.

oh man "Strange"

ufo, Saturday, 4 May 2019 06:31 (three months ago) link

Posted to wrong thread: Wow, the new album is extremely wonderful. But also quite difficult to listen to without crying.

'From' is incredible and her vocal performance on it is so bizarre. And is that a fire crackling in the background?

alrakis morissette (tangenttangent), Saturday, 4 May 2019 13:24 (three months ago) link

First impression: melodied are weaker: too basic and repetitive within the song. Not my cup of tea. Loved Capacity though.

nostormo, Saturday, 4 May 2019 14:53 (three months ago) link

capacity did nothing for me but this was really immediate for me and i love it. i'm completely enamoured by that part in "strange" with the sustained "ahh" and the ascending bass line.

weirdly "from" really reminds me of late-period radiohead?

ufo, Sunday, 5 May 2019 13:25 (three months ago) link

also really love the way "jenni" is so immense after most of the album is so quiet

ufo, Sunday, 5 May 2019 13:31 (three months ago) link

also occurred to me re new from, quite in rainbows-y

Roberto Spiralli, Sunday, 5 May 2019 13:48 (three months ago) link

I think it's a less immediate, less song and voice-driven record than the first two were, and part of me wishes that weren't the case, but at the same time, it's a very beautiful record with a wonderful sound.

I guess when I saw her live the new material did have that immediacy, and I feel like somehow that got a bit lost in the production of both this and the solo record. The moment I think it gets closest to that prior immediacy is on Orange.

I mean the way she does From here, for example, just connects with me much more than either recorded version
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QckxTQQ9XBo&t=364s . Somehow Luke Temple's production makes her voice sound too small and cute, although I do like the abysskiss version a good deal.

The song that connects with me most directly is Terminal Paradise, which I think benefits a lot from the full band arrangement. Others, like UFOF and Strange are a bit more obscured, though really good.

longtime caller, first time listener (man alive), Monday, 6 May 2019 02:35 (three months ago) link

And anyway, at the other end of the spectrum, songs like Paul and Real Love sometimes felt a bit too heavy handed to me, so overall I like the direction she's going in.

longtime caller, first time listener (man alive), Monday, 6 May 2019 02:36 (three months ago) link

i've liked big thief and am excited to check this out but o_O this new pitchfork review has some lines

"Adrianne Lenker, the singer and oxygen of the Brooklyn quartet, whose lyrics can, among other things, bind all that is living and has ever lived together at the cellular level. "

Blues Guitar Solo Heatmap (Free Download) (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Monday, 6 May 2019 14:05 (three months ago) link

Ha! I read it too. It's goofy to put it mildly.

kornrulez6969, Monday, 6 May 2019 14:30 (three months ago) link

Being able to bind all that is living and has ever lived together at the cellular level is what it takes to get a 9+ BNM score on Pitchfork in 2019. The only people meet that criteria this year are them and Beyonce.

MarkoP, Monday, 6 May 2019 14:35 (three months ago) link

yeesh, I love her too but

longtime caller, first time listener (man alive), Monday, 6 May 2019 15:23 (three months ago) link

If you listen to the album and then read the review, it all kinda makes sense if a bit overblown. I do think the strength of Big Thief is that they seem plain and familiar on first blush but somehow pull you into a deep and strange world where the songs they created are the only things that exists.

But if I’d read that review prior to hearing a note of Big Thief, I’d be expecting something different—like, Charalambides or something.

sctttnnnt (pgwp), Monday, 6 May 2019 15:47 (three months ago) link

that reads like the writer mixed up their Big Thief review with their "reconsidering midichlorians" piece on a Star Wars site.

flamboyant goon tie included, Monday, 6 May 2019 16:32 (three months ago) link

I like parts of the review by but it's got a little too much dip on the proverbial chip

Blues Guitar Solo Heatmap (Free Download) (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Monday, 6 May 2019 16:37 (three months ago) link

I've listened to this album twice and so far it seems a bit weightless and slight. The great thing about Capacity was its contrast of delicacy with hugely muscular moments. Each song had a very memorable 'bit' in it that was delivered with surprising immediacy whereas on this album it feels like they're tiptoeing around, trying hard not to be blunt.

frame casual (dog latin), Tuesday, 7 May 2019 15:24 (three months ago) link

This is resonating more for me than Capacity, though it is a very insular record.

sctttnnnt (pgwp), Tuesday, 7 May 2019 17:17 (three months ago) link

I'm listening now - this is sounding fabulous. Opening two tracks especially

imago, Tuesday, 7 May 2019 17:41 (three months ago) link

totally fucking obsessed with this record

american bradass (BradNelson), Wednesday, 8 May 2019 01:04 (three months ago) link

i could go on and on about any song but "strange" has that gorgeous sunlit coda and "jenni" is this huge swallowing mouth of doom

american bradass (BradNelson), Wednesday, 8 May 2019 01:43 (three months ago) link

“Century” has burrowed into my brain.

Entrancing album. It takes me places that feel eerily familiar but I can't quite put my finger on it, like a déjà-vu. It's tender like an embrace.

Uptown VONC (Le Bateau Ivre), Wednesday, 8 May 2019 09:52 (three months ago) link

i have never heard of this band before. their slow, calm, harmonical music is like a warm blanket i can wrap myself in. which works quite well right now as the temperatures outside in berlin are still quite low. the singer's voice who occasionally is quite mickey mousey (joanna newsom anyone?) bothers me sometimes but i kind of have gotten over to it. somehow their music to me sounds like coming straight from a huge dark forest full of elves and dwarfs. my fave is the first song "contact". i found it a bit hard to listen to the whole album in one go. maybe they should have gotten rid of a couple of songs in the second half. my attention span these days is not what it used to be. it must be due to the reign of the smartphone and stuff. concentration and patience have become a real challenge!

je est un autre, l'enfer c'est les autres (alex in mainhattan), Wednesday, 8 May 2019 19:41 (three months ago) link

Dan S, Friday, 10 May 2019 01:57 (three months ago) link

another beautiful album by this band, but it isn't hitting me as hard as Capacity yet. prob just need to let it sink in a bit more. love the production though, particularly the way the drums sound on songs like the title track.

i think ur a controp (voodoo chili), Friday, 10 May 2019 14:16 (three months ago) link

This is really amazing

Evokes a sort of jazzy, gauzy quality that I love about Hejira by Joni without really sounding derivative of that at all

Blues Guitar Solo Heatmap (Free Download) (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Friday, 10 May 2019 14:22 (three months ago) link

Also would recommend if people haven't heard it - Rozi Plain - What a Boost

again not identical or anything but a very great and evocative album that has a somewhat similar feel and mix of folk/indie/jazz, def comes from a different place musically but if you like this you might like that

Blues Guitar Solo Heatmap (Free Download) (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Friday, 10 May 2019 14:24 (three months ago) link

listening again and i think the second half is what makes it special. love how 'strange' uses a blues shuffle beat and still manages to remain so delicate, and how adrienne sounds like a totally different person on 'betsy.' and 'terminal paradise' and 'jenni' are just devastating.

i think ur a controp (voodoo chili), Friday, 10 May 2019 14:34 (three months ago) link

The great thing about Capacity was its contrast of delicacy with hugely muscular moments.

i mean, there's that big moment near the end of 'contact,' but yeah, maybe that's one thing i miss on this record.

i think ur a controp (voodoo chili), Friday, 10 May 2019 14:35 (three months ago) link

oh wow, i'd heard rumours of an adrianne solo album coming later this year but a new album from them already is even more exciting - hard to think what could be more exciting this year

here's the press release from a retailer that put up a listing early:

“30 miles west of El Paso, surrounded by 3,000 acres of pecan orchards and only a stone’s throw from the Mexican border, the band Big Thief (a.k.a. Adrianne Lenker, Buck Meek, Max Oleartchik, and James Krivchenia) set up their instruments as close together as possible to capture their most important collection of songs yet. The band had only just finished work on their 3rd album, U.F.O.F. – “the celestial twin” – days before in a cabin studio in the woods of Washington State. Now it was time to birth U.F.O.F.’s sister album – “the earth twin” – Two Hands.

In sharp contrast to the wet environment of the U.F.O.F. session, the southwestern Sonic Ranch studio was chosen for its vast desert location. The 105-degree weather boiled away any clinging memories of the green trees and wet air of the last session. Two Hands had to be completely different— an album about the Earth and the bones beneath it. The songs were recorded live with almost no overdubs. All but two songs feature entirely live vocal takes, leaving Adrianne’s voice suspended above the mix in dry air, raw and vulnerable as ever. Where U.F.O.F. layered mysterious sounds and effects for levitation, Two Hands grounds itself on dried-out, cracked desert dirt.

With raw power and intimacy, Two Hands folds itself gracefully into Big Thief’s impressive discography. This body of work grows deeper and more inspiring with each new album. While you listen, let your own two hands rest in front of your body with palms facing inward and see what power grows between them.”

what are you all on about? i'd say a frightening consensus is building up there. i only listened to the first three minutes of that song and found them not good enough to continue to listen to the next 3 minutes. repetitive, tuneless, without interesting drumming or beats and her voice is a little annoying anyways. is the 2nd half of the song much different from the first?

I haven't listened yet, but based on what I've heard from the most recent album they have a superb sense of defined space within their sound, nothing is wasted. And of course they are catchy as hell. I love how so much of their stuff smolders with restraint and only occasionally cuts loose.

sleeve, Tuesday, 13 August 2019 21:52 (one week ago) link

xp btw i am not sure if i wrote it before but i always had the impression that our tastes overlap quite a lot, sleeve.

je est un autre, l'enfer c'est les autres (alex in mainhattan), Tuesday, 13 August 2019 21:53 (one week ago) link

they do! that's why I'm fascinated by how much we still disagree on

sleeve, Tuesday, 13 August 2019 21:56 (one week ago) link

i discovered them via their last album and really loved the first five or six songs which indeed where catchy and restrained and captivating. they build up an eerie atmosphere, which i love. the second half of the album got a bit boring and was more of the same with less focus. this new song does strictly nothing for me.

je est un autre, l'enfer c'est les autres (alex in mainhattan), Tuesday, 13 August 2019 21:58 (one week ago) link

#BigThiefSquad: Abort, retreat! Alex is onto us pretending to like Big Thief just cause we're screwing with his head! Truman Show at 11!

I mean Alex, your dislike feels genuine, but "repetitive, tuneless, without innersting x" yeah ok, I mean, sure you can say that about Big Thief, but it doesn't seem like you actually listened to their latest record, or this new song (as you just admitted). Nor that you are willing to even listen to one (1) whole song.

Why shit on a song a lot of people think is great when you've not even listened to it proper?! Idgi

Le Bateau Ivre, Tuesday, 13 August 2019 22:28 (one week ago) link

ok the guitar action in the 2nd half is quite interesting. another plus she stops singing. but still altogether this song is not for me. i think it doesn't really hold together. as i said i liked ufof and wrote about it on this thread but this new song is a different beast.

I like this a lot. A three-minute psych-rock guitar solo is p much what their music was always missing for me.

All along there is the sound of feedback (Sund4r), Tuesday, 13 August 2019 22:34 (one week ago) link

being into UFOF but not "Not" is pretty understandable since there's a deliberate stylistic shift (though it's not completely left-field or anything - "Jenni" and "Contact" are more in line with "Not" than most of the album). i think "Not" is quite catchy, i like Adrienne's vocals a lot, the way it maintains a steady groove while still constantly shifting with the background guitar and other ambience etc., the fantastic solo that takes up the entire second half - i don't understand your complaints at all. i'm also confused by your dismissal of the second half of UFOF - "Strange" is the best song on it and "Jenni" and "Terminal Paradise" are especially fantastic too

what isn't reasonable is getting all confused why everyone likes it without even listening to the whole thing lol

ufo, Wednesday, 14 August 2019 08:05 (one week ago) link

I thought UFOF was a big grower anyway. Capacity was very immediate, but ultimately I've learnt not to judge a BT song from the first listen
