About this item

“Big Thief’s quiet power propels songs of the flesh and soul. These are timeless songs, memorable and momentous.” - NPR Music’s Bob Boilen

"their new album is a huge leap forward in just about every possible way, a record made with enormous confidence and intuition and empathy.” – Stereogum

“Adrianne Lenker is a romantic folk-rock poet of the first order.” – Rolling Stone

Big Thief ’s debut album, Masterpiece, met wide critical acclaim, landing spots on countless “Best of 2016” lists. Their music, rooted in the songs of Adrianne Lenker, paints in vivid tones “the process of harnessing pain, loss, and love, while simultaneously letting go, looking into your own eyes through someone else’s, and being okay with the inevitability of death,” says Adrianne. “Mythological Beauty” was the first track released from the band’s 2017 album, Capacity.
