Huh, never heard of Comus (just looked them up). I mentioned on the other thread how I hear some Slapp Happy in certain Big Thief songs; looks like there may be some overlap there.

two weeks pass...

“Not” gets all the attn... but “Shoulders” is also

Yeah Not I'd great and everything but maybe a tiny bit overrated at the expense of other songs on the album.

A batch of recent demos on sale, to benefit their road crew:

One more:

“We all felt this song was one of the strongest
songs/captures in the Two Hands batch but we could never quite get it to fit in a sequence. Happy to be sharing it now”

definitely too straightforwardly pretty for the album. splendid as a standalone single though

It was just a matter of time

I think we may be getting a few new albums soon, guys:

(btw - what kind of cyber-guitar is Adrianne holding in that first pic??)

Got ahold of Lenker's first album, recorded when she was 13.

Kudos to her for getting an album out that early, but I wouldn't recommend it at all.

Oh, nice! Good catch, did you find it in a store or online?

That alb is p terrible but it’s a charming kind of terrible, esp in light of what she’s doing now.

Bought the first Lenker through Discogs. I’ve fallen pretty hard for Big Thief so I decided to start at the beginning. It’s not awful, but it sounds like a reasonably talented 13 year old
imitating... Sheryl Crow maybe? If she has any say in the matter, I can’t imagine it getting reissued anytime soon.

Pretty sure Lucid Tunes was a vanity label, likely run by her dad; this was its only other release. From what I've read, she and her dad are on good terms, so he's not likely to reissue it w/out her consent!

This demo "Mermaid" is sick... it's kind of a new take on the "Cattails" idea

Inadequate grass (morrisp), Wednesday, 13 May 2020 03:39 (one month ago) link

These goofy-dressing hippies are the sickest band

Inadequate grass (morrisp), Wednesday, 13 May 2020 03:41 (one month ago) link

really hoping the casio guitar is going to make the new album
