Japanese Breakfast is the lo-fi project of Michelle Zauner, songwriter and former frontman of the rollicking indie punk band Little Big League. As Japanese Breakfast, Zauner retains the loose structure and fervent energy of her old band but with a more subdued, patient approach. The result is a brooding brand of experimental indie pop with orchestral and electronic inspirations.

I remember coming across this album after hearing her rad as hell "Deceptacon" cover with Paws. I was still in high school and searching for new music when saw this with the Name Your Price download. I of course named my price $0 given how broke I was, but absolutely loved listening to "The Woman that Loves You" on my iPod shuffle.
Seeing Japanese Breakfast pop off made me so happy. I like to think that my incessant Tumblr posting about this collection of music helped out. Love the album. Jon Del Real

It feels like you shouldn’t be listening - in a good way. Like hearing secrets someone’s never said out loud. It’s personal, charming, and introspective through sounds and lyrics. I get somber every listen. Silcio
