In February, Big Thief released Dragon New Warm Mountain I Believe in You, a double LP with 20 songs totaling an hour and 20 minutes. The album received extensive praise from publications like Pitchfork, Consequence and Stereogum.
The band, led by singer-songwriter Adrianne Lenker, has taken the indie music scene by storm as of late. Big Thief performed at Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago in 2021. Their performance can be viewed on Pitchfork’s website. More recently, Big Thief released a Tiny Desk (Home) Concert for NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert series on YouTube.
Dragon New Warm Mountain I Believe in You is just the latest addition to Big Thief’s impressive discography. The band released their debut album, Masterpiece, in 2016 and has been releasing music nearly non-stop since then. In 2017, Big Thief released their sophomore album Capacity followed by U.F.O.F. and Two Hands, both released in 2019. In addition to the group’s studio albums, they released a live session titled Live at The Bunker Studio in 2021.
Tickets for the upcoming shows go on sale on Friday, Sept. 16 at 10 a.m. local time, according to the band’s Instagram post, and they can be purchased on Big Thief’s website.
