Big Thief - "Humans"

As we're now a week away from the release of Big Thief's debut album, Masterpiece, we're getting whipped into a frenzy of anticipation. Luckily, we have a third song off the album to obsess about. 

"Humans" starts off with some pretty straight forward Americana laced rock n roll, the kind that Tom Petty has spent the last 30 years perfecting. Then, it slips into some distorted 90s style indie rock. All the while Adrianne Lenker's voice just sucks you fully in, with a feel of lilting vulnerability masking a power that could come out at any moment. "Humans" is pretty much just perfect.

Big Thief's debut album, Masterpiece, will be out May 27 on Saddle Creek. You can listen to it below. To pre-order Masterpiece, head over to Saddle Creek's website. You can get more information on Big Thief here. We're also including some tour dates way down at the bottom.

  1. The places I saw here are really wonderful, celebrating a special event like this with the beauty of nature is really cool. When you are in this event venue Chicago, there's nothing you can do than to be happy. I really liked it here.
