Big Thief

    I’ve been playing the new Big Thief album on repeat today, their second great album of 2019.

    We all collectively spend so much time listening to or watching bands who made their best music 20+ years ago that it’s pretty wonderful to hear a band doing it now.

    Here’s a clip of them on Colbert last night. A very different band, but this song seems to have something of the intensity I felt when I first saw The Pixies. Great lyrics as well.

    I wasn’t sure just voice, guitar, bass, drums would ever excite me again but this really hits the spot.

    Aren’t they wonderful? Capacity was my lp of ‘17 by a good margin. UFOF took me a little longer to get into but is all the more rewarding for it, and throughly enjoying the latest cut in the car today, looking forward to sitting down with it later on headphones.

    Funnily enough I couldn’t get into her solo joint. I found it frustrating - for me their sound really holds together as a whole, her voice, sure, but WITH that guitar work and the shimmering, ever evolving percussion.

    They’re pretty much out on their own at the moment for me.

    Heard that track on the radio and I'm buying this album. Cheers for the reminder.

    I haven't gotten really really into any band or artist in quite a few years. I'm past due fan boy status

    There are a couple of tracks on her solo album, Abysskiss, that are also on UFOF (Terminal Paradise and From) and they are both better second time around. UFOF is a great record and I've not had a chance to listen to their latest so that's something to look forward to. I think I'll just get the CD without listening to it on Spotify.

    Every time I see a film of them playing this song it gets mightier.

    Sadly I'm working when they play the UK this month - anyone going??

    UFOF sounds interesting so far, thanks.
