Japanese Breakfast | Psychopomp - LP
Release date: 19.08.2016
Japanese Breakfast began as the side project of Philadelphia-based Michelle Zauner, who also fronts the band Little Big League. In June 2013, Zauner released the bedroom tape 'June' under the name Japanese Breakfast, featuring 30 tracks written and recorded on each day of the month. Zauner now releases Japanese Breakfast's debut album, 'Psychopomp', showcasing her lovely vocals, pop sensibilities and darker lyrical side. The album was originally released by Yellow K Records but is reissued by Dead Oceans. The album is full of taut, gossamer pop songs that hints at The Sundays, Mount Eerie, Grouper and Asobi Seksu. After her mother was diagnosed with cancer, she returned home to Oregon; while she was there, she revamped songs from her previous lo-fi releases to find joy in her sadness and despair in the brightest of lights. It's an immaculately crafted debut that deserves to be heard.LP - Black Vinyl with Download.LP+ - Limited Opaque Violet Coloured Vinyl with Download.
