"I'm not gonna be what my Daddy wants me to be" and I'm proud of it! Mitski is full of fire and fury, balanced with an exposed rawness that adds real intimacy to her songs. She has harnessed the full emotional spectrum for an excellent album.
Mitski's grit makes me proud to be a woman with dirt under my nails, a snarl on my face and the power to kick ass. She is unafraid to be raw and wild, but has the technical prowess of an incredibly skilled musician and songwriter.
William is so sonically skilled. You can see the landscapes open up before your eyes and you listen. I want to take a walk through these songs and see the beauty of the quiet places in our countryside.
I have been waiting for years for a new album from The Avalanches, and now I don't have to. An exquisitely complex and endlessly listenable album. Pop it on when you're at work or working out to get in the zone.
