Buck Meek of Big Thief talks about his guitar pedals

Big Thief's debut album "Masterpiece" has been rocking our world this year - so much so that we named it The Deli NYC's Record of the Month back in July. We asked the band's guitarist Buck Meek (who also has a solo folk project we recommend checking out) to tell us about the stompboxes he uses when playing with the band; you can find his very thorough response on our sister blog Delicious Audio - link below! If you can afford it, tou can see Big Thief next on 12.03 at the Beacon Theater, sharing the stage with Cindy Lauper!

Brooklyn singer/songwriter Buck Meek’s quietly powerful 'Heart Was Beat' EP

Earlier this month, Brooklyn-by-way-of-Texas singer/songwriter Buck Meek released his Heart Was Beat EP. An understatedly beautiful collection of five country-folk tracks, the album has the smooth-voiced guitarist telling stories of drifters and loners over a calming blend of trailing strings and soft drums. Listening to tumbling songs such as “Misty” (streaming below) and “Fog Rolls,” one may recall Phosphorescent or Iron & Wine, but Buck Meek’s sheer musicianship and vivid writing prove his own promising, exciting talent. – Zach Weg

We added this song to The Deli's playlist of Best rootsy songs by emerging NYC artists - check it out!
