Limited vinyl LP pressing comes with digital download. A side project from her work as front woman of Philly indie punk band Little Big League, Michelle Zauner released June, a tape of 30 songs in 2013 under the name Japanese Breakfast. 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 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.
