RIYL: Soccer Mommy, Phoebe Bridges

Label: 4ad

Their previous album Capacity was such a surprise gem for me back in 2017, this looks to be a solid follow up. The first single already got best new track on pitchfork and for once i agree with them. I feel their sound is really leaning into the haunting sound they played with on the previous album.  I foresee this being a pretty heavy release, and at this good price seems an easy decision.

U.F.O.F., F standing for ‘Friend’, is the name of the highly anticipated third record by Big Thief and their first on 4AD, set to be released on 3rd May 2019.

U.F.O.F. was recorded in rural western Washington at Bear Creek Studios. In a large cabin-like room, the band set up their gear to track live with engineer Dom Monks and producer Andrew Sarlo, who was also behind their previous albums. Having already lived these songs on tour, they were relaxed and ready to experiment. The raw material came quickly. Some songs were written only hours before recording and stretched out instantly, first take, vocals and all.

“Making friends with the unknown… All my songs are about this,” says Adrianne Lenker (guitar, vocals); “If the nature of life is change and impermanence, I’d rather be uncomfortably awake in that truth than lost in denial.”
