Stream Big Thief’s debut record, “Masterpiece”, now on NPR First Listen

Big Thief is a four piece indie rock band composed of Adrianne Lenker, Buck Meek, James Krivchenia and Max Oleartchik based out of Brooklyn. Their goal as musicians is to break the barrier between you and them, you and their music and ultimately the barrier between all living things. According to the band:

“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 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.”

Their debut record boldly titled, Masterpiece, is due out May 27th on Saddle Creek but is currently streaming on NPR First Listen. You can pre-order the album Saddle Creek, Bandcamp and iTunes.
