This isn’t BIRP related, but I highly recommend checking out Mitski’s new album Bury Me at Makeout Creek. Sometimes I feel kinda jaded about indie-rock and how it all seems to sound the same, push the same message, and become wholly boring, but Mitski is a rest from that jaded point-of-view. Her lyrics and sounds, though not groundbreaking or avant-garde, have that special something that I feel like a lot of indie-rock music today is missing. You can listen to the album here.
Also FYI I’m not being asked/paid/etc. to write this post I just really like Mitski’s new album.
