    “Be the Cowboy is simultaneously Mitski’s most and least conventionally pop album to date and the most dramatic pivot in her discography. Her sparkly lean-away from a blatantly “indie rock” sound screams “pop!” at the top of its lungs, but a closer probe at song structures that dodge repetition and defy verse/chorus conventions exposes a warped shape of what a pop song can be. Her fresh sonic direction was a conscious effort on her part, informed by the desire to progress as an artist and the fear of the same stagnance she’s seen other artists fall into when they get too comfortable.”

    What’s in the Box:
    •Exclusive red color vinyl
    •Heavyweight gatefold tip-on jacket
    •12 page full color booklet
    •12" x 12" original art print by Charlotte Mei

    FWIW Newbury just announced their own exclusive with a signed poster, limited to 100. Certainly makes this less appealing.

    also really gotta think that the secretly bundle is just way better bang for you buck if you want this record.

    I've heard some Mitski in my travels but it's never really caught on with me. But I'm firmly team no-swap this month. I like the package (haven't seen the art print tho), and red vinyl is always some good fire to have in your arsenal.

    I'll be catching up on the back catalogue in anticipation of this one hitting m'doorstep.

    Newbury shipping is crappy and expensive though. Also poster is only limited thing about this, otherwise the standard pressing being offered all over the place.

    Want to pop in to let you know it's not their own variant, it's the indie store exclusive, but you have a chance of nabbing a signed poster, as noted on their site.
    also, it's not beck

    This record does not appeal to me. At all.

    But I swapped for Demon Days!

    So all is beautiful with the world.

    No email on my end yet.

    But I'm really excited about this album. The side subs not so much but this I'm absolutely stoked for.

    I'm game... i wonder if the regular editions have the booklet and the heavyweight tip-on jacket, or if that's just a VMP thing too.

    Art print is neat.
