Coloring Club Plus — 11/16/19

Nov 16

After graduating from Purchase College’s Conservatory of Music, where she studied studio compositions and released her first two albums as student projects, Mitski learned to play the guitar and began work on her third studio album. The projects, combined with completing her degree while working outside jobs to pay rent, left Mitski exhausted, a state which heavily influenced the creation of the album. The album was recorded mostly in houses and makeshift studios with a select group of musicians and friends and represented a departure from Mitski’s classical training showcased in her orchestral, piano-based first two albums.

Bury Me at Makeout Creek is the third studio album by Japanese-American indie rock musician Mitski, released through Double Double Whammy on November 11, 2014. The album was written entirely by Mitski, with production handled by Patrick Hyland, who also produced her previous record, Retired from Sad, New Career in Business (2013). The title of the album is a quote from the Simpsons episode “Faith Off“.

Two music videos were released for “Townie“, the first directed by Allyssa Yohana and premiered on Rookie on November 9, 2014, and the second directed by Faye Orlove and premiered on The Fader on March 9, 2015. I’ll post both videos. Which one do you like better?

 

Sunday Video: “Townie” – Mitski from Rookie on Vimeo.

 

There’s a party and we’re all going
And we’re all growing up
Somebody’s driving and he will be drinking
And no one’s going back
‘Cause we’ve tried hungry and we’ve tried full and
Nothing seems enough
So tonight, tonight
The boys are gonna go for
More more more

And I want a love that falls as fast
As a body from the balcony, and
I want a kiss like my heart is hitting the ground
I’m holding my breath with a baseball bat
Though I don’t know what I’m waiting for
I am not gonna be what my daddy wants me to be

Smell that, it’s wet grass, and smoke in my hair
I think I’ve had enough
But he wants a finale and I came prepared
And we’re not going back
And I’ve tried sharing and I’ve tried caring
And I’ve tried putting out
But the boys boys boys keep coming on for
More more more
And change change change is gonna come, but
When when when?

And I want a love that falls as fast
As a body from the balcony, and
I want a kiss like my heart is hitting the ground
I’m holding my breath with a baseball bat
Though I don’t know what I’m waiting for
I am not gonna be what my daddy wants me to be

And I want a love that falls as fast
As a body from the balcony, and
I want a kiss like my heart is hitting the ground
I’m holding my breath with a baseball bat
Though I don’t know what I’m waiting for
I am not gonna be what my daddy wants me to be
Songwriters: Mitsuki Laycock
