JAPANESE BREAKFAST: June: Cassette

May 30, 2014

Michelle Zauner of the band Little Big League recorded a song a day for the month of June and this tape is the result. Zauner’s voice has a pretty, ethereal quality to it, which makes the sometimes bleak lyrics all the creepier. Not the ultra lo-fi type of music that is routinely coming out on cassette these days, June is instead a very polished, stunner of a release. These one-minute tracks seem way longer than they are. Maybe Zauner honed her patience skills by having to wait for her Z name to be called last at school growing up? June is a class act all around.
