New Music Fridays – Big Thief

Well, it’s a little past Friday, but this album called U.F.O.F. by Big Thief came out and it is worth a listen (or actually two).

The best way I can describe it is folksy with a tad of emotion. But wait, there’s more! The opener, Contact, starts with a plucky riff under airy vocals, and by the end, distorted guitars perfectly parallel cavernous screams.

Adrianne Lenker’s voice is what keeps the whole thing together. From quiet intimate moments in From to the bubbly energy in Cattails, her singing style ranges from subtle to forceful, but never in-your-face.
