Though not necessarily nostalgic, the sound of Bury Me at Makeout Creek, the impressive third album from Mitski Miyawaki, is inventive and resourceful in a '90s-indie way.

Consequence of Sound

Bury Me at Make Out Creek promises to be delicate, then shatters that promise within its first minute and a half.

Although Bury Me at Makeout creek is Mitski’s strongest album thus far, I find her lack of ambition and tendency to underdevelop her songs rather frustrating.

nesse álbum também inclui a melhor música da Mitski em minha opinião que é “Last ... read more
