Links: The Miracle of Big Thief

The Miracle of Big Thief (via Vulture)
Contemplating infinity, cross-country trips, and a towering double album with rock’s critical darlings.

Big Thief is arguably making the best music on the planet right now. Dating back to 2017, I don't think there is a band or artist that I've posted more about on this blog. They are really, really good and it seems like they are only getting better as they get more freedom:
"We’re a band that values exploration above product. I feel like we find the value in the work. Just building our internal muscles is more valuable to us than the end result. And I feel like that’s a really special thing because it allows for a lot of freedom. It just has to feel good to us. If no one else likes it, that’s fine. Like, we can’t control it beyond that. And if everyone likes it and we don’t feel it, then we’re going to keep going until we like it."
