” … sometimes the songs start out wistful, but almost always end up blistering.” The New York Times
“Mitski’s talent for penning deep-cutting lyrics make this album soar” 
Rolling Stone
“It’s an absolute masterpiece… ”  Stereogum
“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.”
“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.”

NYC-based songwriter extraordinaire Mitski has just announced that she 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 tracks. In celebration, fans will have new chances to experience Mitski’s raw, soul-shaking live show as she tours with Hundred Waters this month and joins Screaming Females and Speedy Ortiz on the road later 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.

The already critically-acclaimed Bury Me At Make Out Creek opens with “Texas Reznikoff,”a track that starts with soft and sparse acoustic chord progression, which subsequently erupts into a barrage of rib-rattling distortion. “First Love / Last Spring” showcases Mitski’s tremulous vocals and melodic-chops supported by a lone baseline before swelling into the sounds of an arpeggiated synthesizer and swelling organ. Meanwhile, standout track“Townie” brings to light the singer-songwriter’s dark sense of humor combined with a head-bopping blowout guitar riff. Today, Mitski unveils the animated video companion to “Townie”, which truly illuminates the song’s meaning.

The “Townie” video  was unveiled with FADER

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 and at SXSW this spring!
