In the midst of being placed on every ‘must hear’ list this summer, Big Thief is touring to support their latest album Capacity. The album is an honest, collection of moments timelessly recorded. Live, they play in low lights. Red decorates their skin as they capture the raw emotion from each song. As the band has thread modesty into their performance, the sold- out show cheers, mesmerized at the magic on stage.
Despite the sticky summer air and the air conditioning failing to do it’s best, the crowd rages closer, banding together to enjoy the band as intimately as they can.
Poetic, honest and by far one of the year’s best albums (so far), Capacity, the sophomore album by Big Thief, is a must hear. Released earlier this month, the record is wracking up quite a buzz amid critics and fans. The emotional triumph from the Chicago band, Adrianne Lenker (guitar, vocals), Buck Meek (guitar), Max Oleartchik (bass), and James Krivchenia (drums), is a soulful guide into sadness and deeper look into the band’s sound.
The band will be headlining The Horseshoe Tavern June 28th.
Back with a follow up to their debut single, Johnny, Basement Revolver has released the aftermath of a heartbroken teen trying to cling to the remains of a fantasy with Johnny pt. 2.
After years of silence from the Toronto band, Alvvays have come back on the scene with In Undertow, as well as an album announcement.
Always sweetly dark and haunting, Emily Haines’ new song is a hymn to chill your bones and awaken that lost teenager inside of us all. Her charm and talent is riddled into each of her tracks and is something that never gets old.
Shake Smile, off their sophomore album, is no surprise one of the best new songs of summer 2017. Big Thief isn’t new to the love of online communities with their emotional lyrics and honestly sweet tunes that touch a part of you you didn’t know existed.
An underrated treat, Death Valley Girls are a band to put on your radar immediately. Dripping with GRL PWR they make a name for strong female leads with their strong tunes and mind blowing shows.
