Featured Release This Week From Big Thief + Studio One Tracks Top 30 Playlist

Jul 17, 2017

The band Big Thief released their debut full-length record last year.  Masterpiece was well-received and audaciously titled for a first album.  Now comes the sophomore release, where it has come to be assumed that a band needs to show that the success of their debut wasn't some kind of fluke.  With Capacity, Big Thief have done just that.  Songwriter, vocalist and guitarist Adrianne Lenker continues to spellbind with her voice and personal lyrics.  Guitarist Buck Meek, bassist Max Oleartchik, and drummer James Krivchenia are the other players in Big Thief.  Although the band is based in Brooklyn, there are a couple of regional connections:  Lenker is originally from Minneapolis, and Big Thief's label is Omaha's Saddle Creek Records.
