Following the release of Bleachers' excellent 2014 debut album 'Strange Desire', they got some pals together to record covers of each of the tracks, releasing the compilation as 'Terrible Thrills Vol. 2'. Follow-up album 'Gone Now' dropped in 2017, and the band are repeating the trick for a limited edition vinyl series - sadly all four releases are sold out already. However, thanks to frontman Jack Antonoff's encouragement, you can listen to the debut 'Terrible Thrills Vol. 3' release, featuring Mitski, below.

Following the Pearl Harbor attack in 1942, over 100,000 Japanese-Americans were sent to US incarceration camps simply because of their ethnic origin. The current socio-political climate in the States has caused many to show concern of a similar path toward intense discrimination, including Kaoru Ishibashi aka Kishi Bashi, whose own parents emigrated from Japan to America. It's the basis for the former Of Montreal member's fourth album, 'Omoiyari', and more specifically, 'Summer Of '42'.
