Big Thiefs James Krivchenia Announces Solo Album Shares New Songs Listen


Big Thief drummer James Krivchenia has announced a forthcoming solo LP. It’s an experimental ambient album called A New Found Relaxation, and he’ll self-release it on June 26. Listen to “Temptation Reduced,” “The Eternal Spectator,” and “Touched by an Angel” from the album below.

According to a press release, Krivchenia built the album out of several hundred smaller pieces, including field recordings, YouTube fragments, and exploratory knob-twisting. He assembled the record in spring 2019 while living in a small town in New Mexico.

Big Thief released two records last year: May’s U.F.O.F. (which was nominated for a Best Alternative Music Album Grammy) and October’s Two Hands. In addition to his work on those LPs, Krivchenia also mixed and engineered Mega Bog’s Dolphine, which came out in September. Krivchenia previously released a 2018 solo album called No Comment.
