Japanese Breakfast

Performed in Sofar NYC

A side project from her work as front woman of Philadelphia indie punk band Little Big League, Michelle Zauner released a tape in June 2013 under the solo moniker Japanese Breakfast. The tape was titled June and boasted thirty tracks written and recorded every day of the month. A stark deviation from Little Big League's guitar-­‐based indie rock, it showcased Zauner's dark lyrics, unique vocals and inherent knack for pop melody. Two bedroom pop cassettes later, Japanese Breakfast returns with its first full-­‐fledged LP and vinyl release, Psychopomp. The album explores Zauner's experimental interests and hosts a wide range of sound: jarring anime samples, minimalist ballads, rhythms and synths reminiscent of Tango in the Night-­‐era Fleetwood Mac paired with the moody intimacy of Mount Eerie. Psychopomp revisits and revamps lo-­‐fi tracks and adds chilling new songs to fall in love with.
