I think we may be getting a few new albums soon, guys: www.instagram.com/p/CADtCEpH-t7/

(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.

Thx!

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 (four months ago) link

These goofy-dressing hippies are the sickest band

Inadequate grass (morrisp), Wednesday, 13 May 2020 03:41 (four months ago) link

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

new adrianne solo track!

ufo, Wednesday, 2 September 2020 01:10 (four weeks ago) link

Big Thief's Adrianne Lenker announces two new albums, songs and instrumentals, out October 23rd on 4AD

songs and instrumentals are two distinct collections, both written and recorded in April after Big Thief’s March tour was abruptly cut short due to coronavirus. After returning to the states from Europe, Lenker decamped to a one room cabin in the mountains of western Massachusetts.

This recording is 100% analog-analog-analog (AAA). No digital process was used in the production of this sound recording.

The album’s stunning artwork are watercolor paintings done by Adrianne’s grandmother, Diane Lee.

Tracklist
songs
1. two reverse
2. ingydar
3. anything
4. forwards beckon rebound
5. heavy focus
6. half return
7. come
8. zombie girl
9. not a lot, just forever
10. dragon eyes
11. my angel

instrumentals
1. music for indigo
2. mostly chimes

ufo, Wednesday, 2 September 2020 05:07 (four weeks ago) link

very curious about what the instrumentals album will be like

ufo, Wednesday, 2 September 2020 05:08 (four weeks ago) link

Sounds like it will be mostly chimes.

sctttnnnt (pgwp), Wednesday, 2 September 2020 17:43 (four weeks ago) link

mostly.

Hmmmmm (jamiesummerz), Wednesday, 2 September 2020 18:03 (four weeks ago) link

interesting! you know it's serious when someone decamps

This recording is 100% analog-analog-analog (AAA). No digital process was used in the production of this sound recording.

i'm enough of an audiophile douchebag to admit that at least part of big thief's appeal is how much better their records sounds than 99.9% of indie rock bands

Decamps(?) Adrianne solo albums aren't a new thing...

"No digital process was used in the production of this sound recording, except for the sick tones of the Casio DG-1 Digital Guitar."

Btw - the new song is good (no surprise)!

i just think the "decamped" to a one room cabin thing is funny, sounds like something a deposed military leader would do

"anything" is really pretty
