Japanese Breakfast





New Japanese Breakfast LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Michelle Zauner has had our attention since the Post Post days, when she first burst on the Philly music scene with her endearing, child-like vocals and ability to write ear-borrowing hooks. (How many of you out there still miss that band?) It was apparent to us then that after Post Post's disbandment, we would certainly be hearing more from the talented songstress. Well, you can now check out the latest release from bedroom-pop solo project Japanese Breakfast, Soft Sounds From Another Planet (Dead Oceans), an album whose origins began as a science fiction concept musical. Though the concept was never fully realized, it remains the foundation of another heartbreakingly honest record of her new and reworked older compositions.





New Video: "Everybody Wants To Love You" (Live - Out Of Town Films) - Japanese Breakfast

Directed by Rocco Avallone, the new live video for “Everybody Wants To Love You” captures Japanese Breakfast in tight performance mode. The Out Of Town Films production feels as though it picks up additional steam, meshing with the whimsical vibe in a quick succinct manner. Japanese Breakfast will be in town for Made in America on Saturday, September 3, and also has a more intimate show on Friday, October 7 at Everybody Hits.





New Music Video: "Jane Cum" - Japanese Breakfast

Japanese Breakfast has a new music video out for "Jane Cum". Inspired by The Craft and True Detective, Michelle Zauner once again joined creative forces with Adam Kolodny, who directed the video for "In Heaven" as well, which is also off her well-received album Psychopomp. The LP is available via Yellow K Records, and has been picked up for worldwide distribution via Dead Oceans. Japanese Breakfast will be direct support for tonight's sold-out show with rising indie star Mitski at Boot & Saddle. (Photo by Zachary Chick)





Weekend Warrior, April 1 - 3

Michelle Zuaner (Little Big League, Post Post) is celebrating the debut label release, Pychopomp (Yellow K Records), from her solo project Japanese Breakfast at Ortlieb’s tonight. The new venture shows a radically contrasting side to Zauner as a songwriter through its use of experimental textures, pads, and loops. Compared to the dynamic energy of the guitar-driven Little Big League, Japanese Breakfast is airy and subdued with sonic nuances. The synth work brings to mind bands like Small Black or Brothertiger, but the songs have more of the carefree charm of The Sundays or Saint Etienne. Joining Japanese Breakfast this evening will be Littler, the fuzzy, poppy, punky band that sounds like the projected approximation of Veruca Salt in the universe where they subsequently became a twee band. Myrrias will also be also performing, bringing a psychedelic slant to the bill, with dark atmospherics and droning, interweaving melodies. Ortlieb’s, 847 N. 3rd St., 8pm, $10, 21+ - Bryce Woodcock
