Led by singer-songwriter Adrianne Lenker Brooklyn folk-rock formation Big Thief became the most vital and defining indie band of 2019. With their two singular, stunning records released in one year Big Thief hit almost all the annual selection of media like Pitchfork or The Guardian and others.
Thirty miles west of El Paso, surrounded by pecan orchards and only a stone’s throw from the Mexican border, Big Thief recorded their most important collection of songs yet. Not even made it to Barack Obama’s annual list of best songs. Lately the group has released a new live set titled Big Thief – Live at the Bunker Studio.
