Recently, I've been thinking a lot about a tweet from Brooklyn-based rock star Mitski's (now deleted) Twitter account: "I used to rebel by destroying myself but realized that's awfully convenient to the world. For some of us our best revolt is self-preservation." This fucks me up (in a good way). I keep it close. Still riding the wave of her fifth release, 2018's Be the Cowboy, the classically trained musician morphed her trademark angsty, fuzzy, guitar-heavy sound into something lusher and more danceable. "Nobody" pulses with disco-influenced beats, while "Lonesome Love" has country twang, but beneath everything is still a throbbing, a wanting, an unheard desire.
