Of all the disparate sounds to be found on Mitski’s 2013 self-released LP Retired From Sad, New Career In Business“, there is none more devastating than her vocal quaver on the song Square.” The song is a chronicle of a decaying relationship, a convoluted interrogation of why things seem so complicated when “God’s very simple and love shouldn’t burn.” Mitski’s pointed lyrical turns-of-phrase have a tendency to silence her audience with their simplicity, She recently performed at SXSW. Earlier this month, Don Giovanni Records announced that they will release the deluxe edition of Mitski’s 2014 record “Bury Me At Makeout Creek”, which will include a series of extra bonus tracks. A live piano version of “Square” will follow the record’s concluding song “Last Words Of A Shooting Star.”
