About this item

'Songs And Instrumentals' are two distinct collections, both written and recorded in April after Big Thief’s March tour was abruptly cut short due to coronavirus. After returning to the states from Europe, Lenker decamped to a one room cabin in the mountains of western Massachusetts.

The album’s stunning artwork are watercolor paintings done by Adrianne’s grandmother, Diane Lee.


Barry says: There really is no stopping Lenker is there? (and why indeed would you want to?) 'Songs And Instrumentals' carries on the runaway success of Lenkers band, Big Thief but moves into the more subtle recesses of her songwriting prowess. Brittle in parts, but shining throughout, this is an accomplished and immersive outing.
