Big Thief’s first full-length album was called Masterpiece, and it was received as such by critics in 2016. The songs that made up that debut could have been the cream of the crop, culled from a lifetime of songwriting by twenty-something vocalist Adrianne Lenker, but Big Thief dispelled any notion of a sophomore slump with the release of Capacity just one year later. Listeners responded with fanfare to Lenker’s breathy yet heart-starting vocals and lyricism that makes myth of personal pain. The Brooklyn quartet brings an impressive scope of genre and ability, ranging from pensive grooves to big hooks to an intricate indie-rock roar. No matter how the music moves next, Big Thief’s star seems only to rise.
