Mitski – Bury Me At Make Our Creek

$53.95 Inc. GST

Bury Me at Makeout Creek, released in 2014, marks a significant artistic evolution for Mitski, a Japanese-American indie rock singer-songwriter. Departing from her previous orchestral and classical influences, this album leans into a rawer, more guitar-driven sound, embodying the ethos of indie rock and punk.

The title, a playful nod to a line from “The Simpsons,” encapsulates the album’s blend of youthful angst and wry humor. Throughout the album, Mitski delves into themes of identity, love, and existential longing, articulating the complexities of young adulthood with both poignancy and a sense of rebellion.

Musically, “Bury Me at Makeout Creek” is characterized by its minimalist yet emotionally charged arrangements. Mitski’s powerful voiceβ€”a striking instrument in itselfβ€”navigates from soft, vulnerable tones to fierce, passionate crescendos, often within the span of a single song. The guitar work ranges from gentle, melodic strumming to aggressive, distorted riffs, mirroring the emotional turbulence conveyed in the lyrics.

Tracks like “First Love / Late Spring” and “I Don’t Smoke” stand out for their haunting melodies and introspective lyrics, capturing the feeling of being caught between desire and despair. “Townie,” another highlight, offers an anthemic quality with its defiant chorus and gritty narrative, becoming a fan favorite.

The production on “Bury Me at Makeout Creek” maintains a lo-fi aesthetic, allowing Mitski’s songwriting and performance to take center stage.
