Album of the week
Big Thief – Two Hands
A few short months since the release of U.F.O.F., Big Thief have released a followup – Two Hands – “the earth twin” to U.F.O.F.’s – “celestial twin”. It was recorded straight after the band’s third record in Washington State, this time in Sonic Ranch studio, 30 miles west of El Paso near the Mexico border.The songs were recorded live with almost no overdubs with all but two songs featuring entirely live vocal takes.
