Folk-rockers Big Thief follow their lauded sophomore effort Capacity with their wispiest, most ethereal album yet. On U.F.O.F., much of the “rock” is absent of the aforementioned folk-rock equation, relying on acoustic guitar, gentle drums, and near-whispered vocals to carry Adrianne Lenker’s deeply poetic songwriting. Turns out, that’s all that’s needed. From “Cattails” to “Century,” these songs embody a nomadic spirit, utilizing transcontinental imagery of highways, full moons, and Great Lakes to compile what feels like many lifetimes of shared experiences. The hushed tones of U.F.O.F. only serve to heighten the effect, as these feel like stories told in secret, with a production that lends the album an impressionistic bend. Distant touches of banjo, piano, and various acoustic twinklings adorn these songs as they explore the outer space of their confines, plucking away ‘til infinity.
