Masterpiece

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.

New track from Big Thief: “Human”

Big Thief comes to from Brooklyn, NY and with them they bring their debut record, Masterpiece, which is due out May 27th on Saddle Creek. They’ve recently released a new single off of the record titled, “Humans.” The track explores that out of control feeling and sense of vulnerability that comes when love has its greatest grip on you: you’ve shared all of you and in that, you’ve “become lost in love” as Adrienne Lenker of Big Thief states.

You can pre-order Masterpiece from Saddle Creek or on iTunes. Catch the band on tour starting June 1st.
