The indie musician @mitskileaks released “Your Best American Girl,” the first single from her fourth studio album, last March. The simple bass line that opens the song should feel familiar to anyone who ever bobbed along with ’90s indie rock while indulging in self-pity (as most certainly did). @mitskileaks, who was born in Japan to a Japanese mother and an American father, murmurs and sighs and sings about a lover. Then, after the power chords kick in and the chorus lifts off: “Your mother wouldn’t approve of how my mother raised me/But I do, I think I do.” “Mothers have always held such symbolic weight in determining a person’s worth,” the author @jennybagel writes in @nytmag’s music issue. “Your mother tongue, your motherland, your mother’s values — these things can qualify or disqualify you from attaining myriad American dreams.” So, Does Mitski’s narrator really approve of how her mother raised her? “It’s unclear,” @jennybagel writes, “but you can hear in her voice just how much she wants to.” @erikmadiganheck took this portrait of #Mitski for @nytmag’s music issue.

I love @mitskileaks so much. Her songs have taught me many many things in addition to telling rich personal stories with beautiful vocal melodies and throwback riffs to my favorite bands from youth. She's also my favorite person on Twitter. Was a serious honor to chat with her for a few at #coachella #coachella2017 #IdRatherBeAtAProtest new #smalldifference tee btw. #mitski

Don't really leave the house much these days now that every gig requires at least a two hour trek but more than happy to leave my shut-in fort for Mitski and her amazing tunes. Live pics up soon! #mitski

I am in a group show this Thursday - @showyourindie along with a lot of talented photographers I am happy to call friends. I will be showing photos of #Mitski , #PWRBTTM and #JoeyBadass Come have drinks, look at prints. believe me it is more fun to look at prints then a screen. Also all the photographers are donating print sales to @vh1savethemusic - Here is an outtake
of the joey badass photo I am showing that I made for @pitchfork

You're the sun, you've never seen the night, but you hear it's song from the morning birds. Well I'm not the moon, I'm not even a star, But awake at night I'll be singing to the birds. #mitski

“Best American Girl”
Lately, I’ve been listening to this artist named Mitski, a Japanese-American singer who often sings about the struggles of being an Asian American living in a Eurocentric society. I’ve become a fan of her music and her music videos, which expose the obstacles that Asian American women face in artistic and gritty ways. #mitski #asianamerican #cherryblossom #identity #music #musician #makeup #art #artistsoninstagram #digitalart @mitskileaks

BIG BLK LEOPARD (snow)
A big black leopard
Is my spirit animal.
The 1st time I met him
I turned into him
And I was climbing
In the rainforest canopy
And I turned into
A big black hawk
And flew away

This morning
I met Him in a cave
And he was lazy
And I pet him
And got fascinated
w his
soothing soft fur
He told me:
You know what to do
