Spending the afternoon filming Mitski on a small row boat on the lake, listening to her songs felt melancholy and peaceful. At first, she had us fooled with her quiet sensibilities but it wasn’t until we saw her perform with a full band in a packed house that we realized we had been misled. Fully plugged in, she slays on bass and sings with the precision of an accurate sniper. Her vocals and thoughts so focused they run chills down your spine. Watch and listen to a stripped down version of Mitski performing “Last Words of a Shooting Star” and “Francis Forever” from her latest album, Bury Me at Makeout Creekthen catch her in a city near you:
