The first note of “Geyser,” the opening track on Mitski’s new album, Be The Cowboy , is almost unbearable and it lasts for a long, long time. It’s like nails on a chalkboard just barely rendered into music. During the full week when I listened to this song and only this song on repeat, I thought I might have damaged my hearing by blasting its initial extended screech inside my ears several dozen times a day. But it wasn’t like I was going to stop.
