Big Thief

On Masterpiece, their 2016 debut, this Brooklyn-based dream-folk album combined shoegaze's reverbed-out guitars with the plaintive vocals and detailed lyrics of lead singer and songwriter Adrianne Lenker – a heady mix of easygoing riffs and gently wrenching singing. This summer they'll be performing a few shows with Conor Oberst and appearing at a number of festivals, including the Portland-adjacent festival Pickathon and Rhode Island's Newport Folk Festival.
