New Music: Mitski “Townie”

by WildChild

On Mitski’s 3rd album, “Bury Me at Make Out Creek” she has hit a new sound that seems to leave her lyrics fighting inside her mind’s inner-dialogue.  The song is more punk rock combined with a spice of poetry, think Sylvia Plath and self-deprecation.


My favorite lines:

“I want a love that falls as fast as a body from the balcony/ And I want a kiss like my heart is hitting the ground,”

“I’m holding my breath with a baseball bat”
