Big Thief is set to follow up their 2016 debut, aptly named Masterpiece. I wore that album out last year and caught a real nice set in Evanston. The fine folks at Saddle Creek will be releasing Capacity on June 9th. Enjoy the fantastic video for lead single, Mythological Beauty below and check out a cool interview she did at NPR w/ Bob Boilen.
The trails that the band takes us down on Capacity are overgrown with a wilderness of souls. These are carnivorous stories, with pangs of sadness and joy. Singer and guitarist Adrianne Lenker shows us the gentle side of being ripped open, and then recounts the second act of pulling oneself back together to prepare for it all to happen again.
“There is a darker darkness and a lighter light on this album,” reveals Lenker. “The songs search for a deeper level of self-acceptance, to embrace the world within and without. I think Masterpiece began that process, as a first reaction from inside the pain, and Capacity continues that examination with a wider perspective.”
