It’s official: Manny Fresh is venturing into new waters. I’ve traditionally only done Weekly Magic for the 70’s, a truly diverse time period for music which I’ve thoroughly enjoyed exploring. From here on out, though, I will be hopping around all time periods to provide y’all with the tracks that I’ve been enjoying lately.
Since Ana Tame introduced me to Mitski’s “Bury Me at Makeout Creek”, I haven’t been able to go too long without listening all the way through it. I know I am a little late to Mitski’s bandwagon, but better late than never right? It has easily been one of my favorite albums I’ve listened to this year and I wish I would’ve been introduced to it sooner.
Although it’s been a solid listen through and through, the one song that I’ve really enjoyed every time I listen to the album is “I Will”. Right from the jump, the bass line slaps you in the face grabs and keeps you engaged throughout the track. The passion in Mitski’s voice is dripping all over this track, which is what stuck out to me most when I initially heard this record. As the track progresses, there’s a desperation in her voice to the subject of the track that looms larger the deeper you get into the track. The tone of the track swerves into a more positive vibe as Mitski hums her way to close the curtain on this song and a sense of resolution sweeps over the listener as the track finishes up.
Respectfully yours, Manny Fresh
PSA, if you have not already, please go listen through “Bury Me at Makeout Creek”. You are doing yourself a massive disservice if you have not listened to this album.
