Brooklyn Vegan has highlighted Japanese Breakfast, the newest solo endeavor of Little Big League‘s Michelle Zauner. American Sound & Where Is My Great Big Feeling will be released via Seagreen Records on July 25th. The Japanese Breakfast songs sprung from an blog based collaborative recording experiment that Zauner undertook with cohorts Eskimeaux, Florist, Frankie Cosmos, and Small Wonder. The single “The Woman That Loves You” is a love song with an unexpected inspiration and Zauner’s pop sense flourishes in this solo context. Read the full story and stream the single at Brooklyn Vegan.
“The Woman That Loves You” is the closest we’ve ever heard her come to new wave. It’s a chilly, moody take on the thumping rhythms and earworm melodies of early ’80s synth pop, and also a little reminiscent of Fleetwood Mac from that era.
