Mitski streaming new album, ‘Puberty 2′
Mitski‘s fourth album and first for Dead Oceans, Puberty 2, comes out next week (6/17) and it’s now streaming in full. It’s the biggest-sounding thing she’s done and quite possibly the best, with arrangements that range from bare-bones to heavily-layered backing Mitski’s distinct, powerful voice. There’s quiet, melancholic stuff like closing track “A Burning Hill,” but also raw punk-ish stuff like live staple “My Body’s Made of Crushed Little Stars” (which is great to finally hear recorded). It’s nothing if not diverse. Listen for yourself below (via NPR).
