"Best American Girl" by Mitski
This week we're featuring new music from Mitski
! On June 17th, Mitski's follow-up to 2014's Bury Me At Makeout Creek
, titled Puberty 2
picks up where its predecessor left off. “It's kind of a two parter,” explains Mitski, “It's similar in sound, but a direct growth from that record.” Musically, there are subtle evolutions from the previous album: electronic drum machines pulse throughout beneath Pixies-ish guitars, while saxophone lights up its opening track. “I had a certain confidence this time. I knew what I wanted, knew what I was doing and wasn't afraid to do things that some people may not like.” The album's debut single Your Best American Girl
is an awesome, super-sized punk-rock number. Check it out!
