Songs about motorcycle crashes and in disrepair hearts bluster queer now, but the maudlin harmonies and four-on-the-bowl over beats reflected corporeal anxietiesof teens and twentysomethings. Mitski Miyawaki — who records under her first name — makes music that looks to that era, both in cut and pith. The 25-year-old Brooklyn songwriter channels the «pop» proof of routine trauma. This is realness, often riddled with feedback, but more often sung in hushed and fixed anxiousness. This is why when she played our SXSW showcase, you could be forgiven in theory that her songs about detriment, heartbreak, aimlessness and uniqueness persevere b manage a vile importance. Pretty Much culling from 2014«s »Bury Me At Makeout Creek«, Mitski»s set was surplus in its instrumentation, but cavernous in feeling. «Townie», the particularly doomy «I Don«t Smoke» and the feedback-squealing closer «Drunk Pathway Home» derailed into fuzz and irrational vocal acrobatics, while «First Love» felt like a bedroom confessional. But Mitski also performed two songs from the on the cards «Puberty 2», a document that opens up her sonic and lyrical palette. «Once More to See You», getting a first drop here, is like something out of a cloudy delusion, with a hiatus between guitar notes that«s confident, yet disorienting. Mitski lets her agent hint at through the pauses like a vegetate choirboy formerly larboard alone in a velvet office. When she spoke with NPR about «Your Best American Bird,» she said, «I am half Japanese, and it came from missing to just fit into this very American person»s biography and absolutely not being able to.» In Austin, it»s a scorcher, riddled with sludgy distortion and crashing cymbals as if someone set off fireworks just above the place!
