Album Review: Big Thief - Capacity

Capacity focuses around what it means to be a human, particularly a woman, teased out through accurately yet succinctly drawn stories in Adrianne Lenker’s lyrics, buoyed by a subtle but flourishing musicianship in the band. The album takes us through several different emotions, but none of them fails to dig a deep well into the human soul and draw out something valuable from beneath.

- I took on the difficult task of trying to explain why Big Thief's second album Capacity moves me so much. Read the full review on The 405.
