Bury Me At Make Out Creek with Unreleased Bonus Material,

Re-Released 4/7 via Don Giovanni Records
“visceral, openhearted indie-rock songs” – The New York Times, Jon Pareles
“Mitski Miyawaki wrings magic out of contrasts: Her incredible vocal range hits crystalline, sonorous highs that often recall Mazzy Star, while the music she’s playing has a gritty, metallic brashness”
Rolling Stone
“Of all the performances we witnessed last week at Austin’s annual South By Southwest festival, one show stealer was particularly arresting: Mitski.” – SPIN
” …triumphant moments of misery exploited by addictive melodies and an unbridled sense of self-imposed empowerment.” Stereogum
“On record, her voice is intense, moving from a gentle hum into high-pitched ad libs, and live it’s even more impressive. From opener Townie all the way to the final track – which is somewhere between Willie o Winsbury and a Kate Bush song – she is completely engaging and delivers the kind of performance that doesn’t belong in a concrete yard surrounded by portable toilets.”  The Guardian US
“The choruses here soar like power pop, but are subdued by tempo and fidelity, while cheap drum machines are deployed as much for their tone as their rhythm.” – Pitchfork
“The entire record is full of that kind of standing-on-a-cliff vulnerability, manifesting in shades of rough-hewn folk and discordant indie pop.” – FADER

NYC-based songwriter extraordinaire Mitski will re-release her breakout record Bury Me At Make Out Creek, April 7th via Don Giovanni Records. This release will mark her joining of the Don Giovanni family and includes special unreleased bonus material. In celebration, fans will have new chances to experience Mitski’s raw, soul-shaking live show as she joins Screaming Females and Speedy Ortiz on the road this spring.

With vivid lyrical imagery, buzzed out guitars and evocative vocals, Mitski has created a unique sound built upon her academic musical background, and as she makes the shift from concert hall to DIY venue her new relationship with the storied label will certainly continue to propel the transition. Today she shares the intimate bonus track “Square” (live solo piano version) which is available to stream here.

While attending SUNY Purchase and studying music composition, Mitski released two records inspired by orchestral energy and expansive in their own right. The brilliant writer came into her own with 2014’s Bury Me At Make Out Creek, immersed in fuzzy guitars, pounding drums, and poetically poignant lyrics, and created a sound all her own. Be sure to catch her live on tour this spring!
