Past Event
“Spend an hour on my makeup to prove something,” Mitski sings forlornly about a romantic assignation on “Lonesome Love,” from her fifth album, Be the Cowboy. “’Cause nobody butters me up like you, and nobody fucks me like me.” The track clocks in at less than two minutes, and yet a piercing sadness lingers long after the song has ended. The vicissitudes of love hover throughout, whether Mitski is intoning over an icy soundscape on “Geyser” or singing a more traditional piano ballad, such as “Old Friend.” She turns her romantic disappointment and self-erasure into a kind of poetry on “Me and My Husband,” in which she confides, “I steal a few breaths from the world for a minute, and then I’ll be nothing forever.” New York duo Overcoats set the mood with subdued electronic pop layered with heartfelt harmonies.
