Song 44: "Two Hands" 

I fell in love with the band Big Thief. They snuck up on me and it took a while, but I eventually got there. They create textures with their music and I can almost reach out and feel how rough it is at the edges. They don't labor over the productions. What they do labor over is camaraderie, because I can feel it as it works its way into every song. I especially like this song, "Two Hands." I hear a great vocal delivering an interesting lyric with pulsing rhythm, clicking sticks, random snare shots, and fuzzy guitars. The bass knows exactly when to ask for a group hug. They are friends who trust each other. This I can hear.
