Perfect example of when autotune works. And if you’re thinking “this sounds like Bon Iver…”, it was co-produced by Justin Vernon.

mitski-puberty-2

One of the more bleak tracks from Mitski’s excellent fourth album. The song explores the parallels between uncontrollable urges and withdrawals of babies born with addiction and those suffering from severe depression. Equally vivid and somber and unexpectedly impactful.

Crystal Castles minus Alice Glass still weirds me out, it’s like spending Thanksgiving with a divorced couple. It really shouldn’t work, but somehow it does. I’m mostly pleased with the new material and new recruit Edith Frances, who really shines on this ethereal track.
