“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

” …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.” – 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 recently re-released her breakout record Bury Me At Make Out Creek via Don Giovanni Records. She won over sold-out audiences performing alongside Speedy Ortiz, Screaming Females and Hundred Waters in NYC, Philly and more & she has just announced a national co-headlining summer tour with Elvis Depressedly.

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. When performing live, she at once rattles your ribs and your emotions. Fans can hear several album tracks, including fan favorite “Townie,” live on the Daytrotter session released today.

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 summer!
