  • Tracklist
  • "Soft Sounds From Another Planet" by Japanese Breakfast is less a concept album about the discovery of space than a mood board brought to life. Over the course of twelve songs, Michelle Zauner embarks on a soundscape that she creates herself and whose square footage is enough to reflect all of her influences.

    There are songs on "Soft Sounds From Another Planet" that recall the pathos of Roy Orbison's ballads, while others could easily be cinematic treatments of a wide shot from "Blade Runner." Zauner's voice is expansive: One second she's singing an ode to the past, the next she's almost robotically telling a love story with lyrics that are more personal and to the point than ever before.

    If "Psychopomp" was a genre-crossing introduction to the world of Japanese Breakfast, then this visionary second album catapults the project to unimagined heights.

    Reviews
    "Even further away from shoegaze and more clearly produced, Michelle Zauner gives her indie pop/rock more polish, breadth and, above all, tremendous depth of content." (musikexpress, July 17, 2017)
