Design of the Week | Big Thief



Big Thief | Radio Waves

Big Thief has a new album, Capacity, out on Saddle Creek Records. It's been received by literal glowing reviews.  Like, the album is the equivalent to molten hot lava swirling in the sky with the Northern Lights. It almost feels holy. Pitchfork gives it an 8.3, so there's that, too.

A lot of music critics talk about the sophomore slump. This is Big Thief's sophomore album, and I think they put that stigma to rest. Their new joint is an extension of the sound they found on their debut, Masterpiece, but takes an even more unflinching, delicate, and intimate look at humanity. My favorite tracks are "Shark Smile" and "Mythological Beauty," but this thing is heartfelt from start to finish.

If you're in the Columbus area, they are playing at Ace of Cups on Thursday, September 21st. I will without a doubt be there.
