Adrianne Lenker

Not a normal artist.

Saw her live for the first time tonight. It’s easy to get carried away, but i honestly think she might be an absolutely exceptional songwriter, guitarist and vocalist.

There’s specifically something about the sort of…modulation of her voice that’s completely unique. What a guitarist. Sometimes you see someone play who’s just all over the neck of a guitar, it was like watching Bert Jansch.

Absolutely fucking brilliant.


Seen Big Thief a few times and her gig at The Union Chapel a few days ago. Excellent gigs.

Yeah she’s amazing, based on what she’s produced so far I think there’s a reasonable shout to call her one of the most gifted songwriters we have right now

Capacity was the best record of 2017 imo. Mary being one of the best songs i’ve heard in yonks.


Yep, think it will rank amongst best of century for me, v excited for new one too


Was at Union Chapel gig this week and it was extraordinary. Have been trying to work out what tunings she was using from the YouTube.

Seen big thief a couple of times. And each time they’ve played a new song or something that she says she’s just wrote that day/week and it just blows you away.


Both times I have seen Big Thief they have been incredible, also that each time I have not recognised half the set because of new songs and had them stuck in my head. I think they may have played Orange at one of those shows and it just blew me away having not heard it before.
