Japanese Breakfast, the solo side project of Little Big League's Michelle Zauner, has garnered an incredible amount of attention since the release earlier this year of "Psychopomp" (available now via Yellow K). Zauner's incredibly raw songwriting combined with her captivating vocals struck me immediately.
I caught Japanese Breakfast's show at The Constellation Room in Santa Ana on July 6 and despite being slotted in between two very strong performances from Jay Som and Mitski, Zauner and company completely won me over with a set that was easily my favorite of the night. Ranging from quiet charm to (literally) in-your-face aggression, Japanese Breakfast was a dream to behold.
