Mitski | Sunday | 7:15 p.m.
In a three-day lineup packed with plenty of aggression (particularly of the angsty, macho variety), Brooklyn-based singer Mitski offers something of a welcome respite. That's not to call her music soft; the 25-year-old's voice manages that same St. Vincent-esque trick of wooing you in with its delicacy before knocking you on your ass with its power. But as she displayed on 2014's Bury Me at Makeout Creek, it's lyrically where the singer really makes her mark. Her songs have a coy way of finding off-kilter and biting angles on the usual lovelorn themes ("You'd say you love me and look in my eyes, but I know through mine you were looking in yours.")
