Mitski planning an LP, on tour, playing DbA w/ Free Cake & Turnip King tonight; Frankie Cosmos touring (dates, stream)
by Andrew Sacher
Brooklyn singer/songwriter Mitski is planning to release a full length this fall/winter via Double Double Whammy (home of Frankie Cosmos), but ahead of that she dropped a digital single on the label, "FIrst Love / Late Spring." The track opens up with a sparse keyboard/vocal intro that sounds like Mitski might be in the same twee realm as Frankie Cosmos and her other labelmates, but then it turns out "First Love / Late Spring" is actually an explosive pop song. Check it out below.
Mitski is currently on a tour that includes a hometown show tonight (6/4) at Death by Audio with her labelmate Free Cake For Every Creature and two solid indie rock bands, Long Island's Turnip King and Chicago's Clearance. Admission is $7 at the door. She's also got a Northside show happening on June 14 at Trash Bar with Small Wonder, Eskimeaux and Yours Are The Only Ears. All dates are listed below.
A few of Mitski's other upcoming dates are with her labelmate Frankie Cosmos, who (as usual), also has many dates coming up including plenty in NYC like Pitchfork Northside, MoMA Nights, and more. All of her dates are listed below too...
