Big Thief are set to release their second LP of the year and based on the first track, I am going to say whoa. It took me a bit to connect with U.F.O.F., but once I did I listened to it every day for about two weeks discovering all the subtleties to it. This album appears to be a little more ooomph to it and I am here for it.

“Two Hands has the songs that I’m the most proud of; I can imagine myself singing them when I’m old,” says Adrianne. “Musically and lyrically, you can’t break it down much further than this. It’s already bare-bones.” Lyrically this can be felt in the poetic blur of the internal and external. These are political songs without political language. They explore the collective wounds of our Earth. Abstractions of the personal hint at war, environmental destruction, and the traumas that fuel it. Across the album, there are genuine attempts to point the listener towards the very real dangers that face our planet. When Adrianne sings “Please wake up,” she’s talking directly to the audience.
