The first non-U.S. release of  the debut from Japanese Breakfast, new project of Michelle from Little Big League. Lofi, upbeat, shoegazey bedroom-pop. For fans of Big Deal, Slow Club, Now Now and Tancred

On Psychopomp, the debut full-length for Japanese Breakfast, Michelle Zauner romanticizes need, knowing precisely how futile it can be, as she howls on the record's final song, to “cling to your sleeves 'til they're like lacerated sails.” Psychopomp unspools with an otherworldly rush—it's sky-sized dream-pop with substance, moving from the gorgeous euphoric rush of “In Heaven” through the pinwheeling “Rugged Country” and “Everybody Wants to Love You,” into the painful longing of “Jane Cum” and “Heft,” and the relief of “Triple 7”. Imagine Bat for Lashes or Tango in the Night-era Christine McVie working in the New York indie-pop scene populated by the likes of Frankie Cosmos and Porches.
