On today's episode I talk to musician Mitski Miyawaki. Originally from Japan, Mitski grew up all over the world, eventually settling in New York. While studying at the SUNY Purchase Conservatory of Music, Mitski self-released her first and second albums, Lush and Retired from Sad, New Career in Business. Her third album Bury Me at Makeout Creek was released by Double Double Whammy in 2014, and it caught the eye of everyone from Pitchfork to Rolling Stone to The New York Times. Mitski's latest, Puberty 2, was released by Dead Oceans earlier this year. Stay tuned for future episodes with Roy Wood Jr., Josie Long, Baron Vaughn, Amber Ruffin and a special 300th episode coming up soon!
