Big Thief • Tiny Desk (Home) Concert • 2022



Bob Boilen | July 20, 2022
I love seeing friends playing comfortably at home, especially when those friends are members of my favorite band. What we see in this Tiny Desk (home) concert is playfulness substituting for the intensity that I normally find in Big Thief on a big stage. This band has made many of my best-loved albums in the past few years, beginning with its 2016 debut Masterpiece and including its 2022 double-album Dragon New Warm Mountain I Believe in You. The first three songs in this set all come from that album and were written by singer Adrianne Lenker, with "Certainty" co-written with guitarist Buck Meek.

Big Thief songs are often filled with tender tales and poetic and playful words. I can say the same for Adrianne Lenker's many solo albums and for Buck Meek's 2021 solo album, Two Saviors. Drummer James Krivchenia produced Big Thief's recent album and also a 2020 ambient album of his own, A New Found Relaxation. Max Oleartchik plays upright bass for this intimate acoustic set on the top floor of a house in "windy Connecticut."

There's a bit of a "hold on to your hat" feel here, with players watching each other for a possible surprise. Maybe it's James Krivchenia's banjo percussion, the galloping rhythm on "Certainty" or how the four musicians sing aloud on a chorus; it is so much fun to see it all unfold. The final song was the biggest surprise; it's an unreleased song Big Thief has been performing, appropriately called "Happiness."

    In the world we live today, Cryptocurrency is leading the world’s economy as it provides profits opportunities to Crypto Traders. The biggest challenge about Cryptocurrency Trading is that, it can be very difficult to understand and just when you think you have figured it all out, it takes another turn that your aren’t expecting. Trading on platforms like Binance, Bittrex, KuCoin e.t.c allows you to control your trades and this could mean you either make profits or you making losses, for most people it has been more of losses than profits.

    We at TIMNEX believe this is a big disadvantage to cryptocurrency traders, the market can change within seconds and your analysis just seems wrong, it’s not your fault, the cryptocurrency market is a craze place and a lot goes on behind your analysis that can cause an instant change.
