Be The Cowboy

Housed in a 6 Panel Wallet.

Black Vinyl.

Hailed as the new vanguard of indie rock following the breakout success of 2016’s Puberty 2, Mitski returns with Be The Cowboy via Dead Oceans.


This is internationally-raised, much-travelled (currently in New York) Mitski’s fifth album. 14 tracks recorded with her regular producer Patrick Hyland.


The yearning drone of a harmonium, dreamy rich vocals over mournful organs. Woozy keyboards ooze and hover behind haunting vocals. Melancholy folk-tinged tunes with keyboards climbing and descending in a stomach-lurching sounds that catch at your ears at the same time as they unsettle you. With a country twang to her voice over a distorted synth drone, sweeps of orchestral strings and some disco-pop so you can dance by yourself while you cry.


Smiths, Nico, Pet Shop Boys, Japanese Breakfast, Waxahatchee, Lucy Dacus, Sufjan Stevens, St Vincent.
