Big Thief released a brand new collection of demos on Friday, 17th April and Getintothis’ Danni King has all the details. 

Big Thief have released  Demos Vol.1 – Topanga Canyon, CA – Feb 2018; a collection of unreleased material from the recording sessions which resulted in their two 2019 albums U.F.O.F and Two Hands. 

“We spent the month of February 2018 in a cabin in Topanga Canyon, California, recording 34 demos that were boiled down to become UFOF and Two Hands, and we’re bringing a handful into light now to share with everyone.”

Demos – Vol.1 boasts 5 tracks, with 34 demos having been recorded during their sessions in Topanga Canyon, CA.

“We chose 5 of our favorites – none of which appear on any Big Thief records and a couple of which appear in different forms on Adrianne’s abysskiss

Currently available on Bandcamp, all proceeds are going to band’s road crew.

Big Thief explained the impact the current pandemic is having on their touring crew, and how the release of the demos collection would help them;

“100% of the funds we make from this release will go to our faithful road crew, whose income has been impacted by the disruption in our touring schedule. They are the lifeblood of the Big Thief shows and we care so deeply for each and every one of them.”
