Japanese Breakfast is the solo project from Philly band Little Big League’s singer-guitarist Michelle Zauner.
Psychopomp was recorded in Eugene, OR, where she moved home to help her cancer stricken mother. The shimmering pop gems are revamped versions of lo-fi basement recordings, reworked with the help of collaborator Ned Eisenberg.
The album is a great mesh of shoegaze, 80’s synth pop, retro girl group and 90’s indie rock pop. But it’s the shiny Everybody Wants To Love You that rollicks along and wins the day, and is new music you should love.
