Mitski – Puberty 2

The taxing climbs and tumbling falls between puberty’s ecstatic peaks and hopeless valleys result in some serious emotional motion sickness, leaving you confused and disoriented by the time you’re spat out into adulthood. Mitski Miyawaki’s new album, Puberty 2, is more akin to a vast, brutally lonely desert. Her last record, 2014’s Bury Me At Makeout Creek, was raw to the point of emotional gore. Mitski, who previously described herself as a “tall child,” has gone from wanting “a love that falls as fast as a body from the balcony” to wondering, “What do you do with a loving feeling/ If the loving feeling makes you all alone.”
