Lenker’s new record is a snapshot of all the songs that felt most alive in the studio for her. Some are already years old, others were written just before the album recordings, some may be changed to be heard again, others may never be heard again. What connects them is difficult to say. Let’s call it Lenker’s intuition. But what they document is something that fans of Big Thief already know: Adrianne Lenker is a songwriter of the highest mercy. All the better that she comes to Berlin for an exclusive show in January.
