Earlier this year, we brought in Brooklyn indie-pop songwriter Mitski and her band for a Bandwidth session at our neighbor’s place, Blk Chvrch. We taped two songs on the band’s last day of tour—when they were “exhausted and sentimental,” in Mitski’s words. But their fatigue isn’t readily apparent here. On the contrary, “First Love/Late Spring” and the slowly building “I Want You” sound noisy, lovesick and very much awake.
