A side-project from her work as front woman of Philadelphia indie punk band Little Big League, Michelle Zauner released a tape in June 2013 under the solo moniker Japanese Breakfast. The tape was titled June and boasted thirty tracks written and recorded every day of the month. 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 full- fledged LP and 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. After the foundation of the album was built, Zauner enlisted Ned Eisenberg to coproduce and embellish the record. Eisenberg helped with the mixing and production of the album. Psychopomp revisits and revamps lo-fi tracks and adds chilling new songs to fall in love with.
Miya plays psycho grunge ballads and existential crisis rock (only kind of kidding). Her EP Strange Darling premiered on Stereogum and was recently reviewed by Jon Pareles in the New York Times, saying her “gift is capturing the uncertainty, temptation and impulsiveness of those brief but fraught junctures.” Her band was included in Bob Boilen’s top 10 discoveries of CMJ 2015 and, Boilen also included her in his 2015 review of shows, calling her live performance “transcendent”. Noisey urged readers to “Allow a little magic into your life in the form of LA-based folk-pop songstress Miya Folick,” and Pigeons and Planes compared her to Fiona Apple, Alanis Morrisette, and PJ Harvey. She lives in Downtown LA with her books and her disco ball.
Dante Elephante is an Alternative Indie Rock band from California with a recent release "German Aquatics" on Echo Park based record label Lolipop Records. "Anglo-Saxon Summer" out now produced by Jonathan Rado of Foxygen.
