Brooklyn's Big Thief emerges with lilting narratives and twisted, fuzzy guitars, surrounding a heart of song. Their new video/single, "Masterpiece," embodies a visceral turn in Adrianne Lenker’s writing toward something heavier, cabalistic in both its darkest and most tender moments – a contrast to her 2013 solo LP, Hours Were The Birds, and her 2014 duo EPs with Buck Meek, a-sides and b-sides. Now, with Meek on guitar, Max Oleartchik on bass, and James Krivchenia on drums, Big Thief will support Here We Go Magic's fall 2015 Be Small album-release tour across the US and Canada from October 22nd to November 21st. Their first full-length recordings are now in production.
Listening to Big Thief is like the feeling of looking at a dog and suddenly marveling that it is like you but very not like you; when you are accustomed to looking at a dog and thinking 'dog', watching or listening to Big Thief is like forgetting the word 'dog' and looking at that naked animal and getting much closer to it and how different it is to you.
