Stream Pick: Japanese Breakfast

By: Laurie Gallardo

Get a copy of Japanese Breakfast‘s Soft Sounds From Another Planet on vinyl, if at all possible. Then get those headphones on. Dive deep into the celestial vibes. In an interview during her visit to KUTX’s Studio 1A, songwriter/vocalist Michelle Zauner discussed the album’s combined themes of space and divinity, confronting trauma, and people’s disassociation from their trauma in an attempt to live a life not defined by their struggles.

Zaumer has organized a live stream show that will feature new Japanese Breakfast tracks and a collection of covers to raise funds in support of her band, following several months’ worth of show cancellations on what would’ve been their tour. Show them some love when you join Zauner for the show tonight, Thursday May 14th, starting at 6 p.m. (Central) on Noonchorus. Your virtual ticket supports the band, and links to their merchandise are provided.
