An extraordinarily powerful evocation of isolation and heartbreak built with the barest of ingredients, Adrianne Lenker’s two new albums are spellbinding.
Big Thief’s second album of 2019 alone, ‘Two Hands’, is much more earth-bound and raw than its heavenly predecessor.
Delivered at a stable pace and focussed on songwriting, ‘U.F.O.F.’ is the most expansive Big Thief album yet.
Addressing love, loss and grief, as well as birth and youth, Big Thief singer Adrianne Lenker’s latest solo album ‘abysskiss’ is a melancholy triumph.
Following up a promising debut just 13 months ago with an excellent second album, Big Thief are becoming one of the most exciting bands of 2017.
