Not sure if they know what they had and Lost
Shark smile had such power in its haunting lyrics, and a driving sound that had to be heard.
I can not find one song here that is anything like the beauty of Shark smile. I don't think they
know what they had and the possibiities. Because this direction just falls flat, and painfully so.

I only recently discovered Big Thief when I heard Shark Bite from their second record, and loved it. I bought their first two records, and was impressed with both...I loved the ambient swagger of the music and the beautiful, haunting imagery of the lyrics and vocals, all of which were dripping with effects, and it worked. I was excited to see the new one come out, but honestly, I feel they've lost what made them great. Vocals are dry and all up-front, and Adrianne Lenker's voice just doesn't draw me in on this one. Sounds like an amateurish garage band work to me.
Sounds like Thriving Ivory
It sounds like the guys from Thriving Ivory and THe Calling got to gether and created something worse. Maybe its because it sounds like it was recorded in a bedroom on vintage cassette tape recorder.. It just doesnt sounds original. Despite the reviews.

Music, honest music, is worth your time and money. This is exactly that, honest music. Buck Meek, you are an inspiration of strange notes. Adrianne Lenker, your storytelling, poetry and voice are a gift to anyone with senses able to percieve them. Thank you all for what you do.
I’ll say it: Big Thief uses Two Hands to steal our hearts!
OK- you know you were thinking of the same catch phrase but just wouldn’t give in and say it!
Seriously though, I purchased Big Thief’s UFOF and Two Hands after reading a positive review in the Wall Street Journal and I am not disappointed. The albums are a great listen whether at home or in the car. Lyrics and instrumentals are very soothing without being too uniform or boring.
Let Big Thief into your home- For 10 bucks, Two Hands is a steal! 😁
The song “Not”....
Been waiting to buy. Saw Big Thief in L.A. and heard this song. Couldn’t wait to hear it again. Glad it’s available now.
I just know this first song. I absolutely love the ear bleed guitar solo at the end of it. Freaking awesome.
