In the two weeks since it was released, Mitski’s fifth album “Be the Cowboy” has received enormous acclaim from fans and critics alike.

Top to bottom, the arrangement had been soft, meandering “” calming, maybe, but unexciting. The strings were barely at a whimper, and they were mellowing still, petering out, until there was...
