Big Thief are, by a distance, the finest band in the world

Reckon it might be Let’s Eat Grandma, Everything Everything, Protomartyr, Car Seat Headrest, or TWICE, depending on the metrics

Hope they hang around for 20 years or so and run out of people to name songs after until they’re stuck with Ian, Keith and Maude.

They’re fine.

Think I’ve said this before but you had about 20 pleasant folky bands about this good in 2006.

I like Big Thief

They’re not pleasant is the thing, almost every one of the performances on record or live is pretty tortured.
There weren’t any bands in 2006 with as much lyrical potency or interesting ideas as Big Thief are putting out rn, at least within this subgenre
Mitski comes close but not really a band as such I guess, although she plays with one
