The Godfather of Punk has sung Mitski’s praises on his BBC 6 radio show. Yesterday before playing her song “My Body’s Made of Crushed Little Stars.” Iggy had this to say:

“She’s a great talent. For me she’s probably the most advanced American songwriter that I know — if it’s not her, maybe I would say Justin Vernon, the Bon Iver guy — but this young woman is really really really… she can do whatever she wants. She writes and sings and she plays too; her name’s Mitski.”

You can listen to a snippet of the stream below:

I wish sound were tangible so I could put a chain through this and wear it around my neck. Iggy Pop on BBC6, talking about…my music(!)
