unbothered by the prospect of difficult album number 2, michelle zauner uses shoegaze and pop music tropes to create music of profound loveliness – the healing after the catharsis of her debut.

her distinctly dreamy voice and immaculate ear for melody unifies the diverse influences into a musically complex and constantly intriguing album. so whether it’s some downplayed slowdive-esque guitars or an 80’s style sax solo, everything here feels of a piece. Japanese breakfast should be top of your list to check out if you’ve enjoyed mitski, waxahatchee and frankie cosmos. dreamlike and existential, the album soars with its shimmering pop songs.” 4/5 – the guardian, “uncomfortably personal, unpretentiously profound.” 8.0 - pitchfork
