I originally found Japanese Breakfast on a Spotify Playlist called Borderless. I'd say that's pretty accurate for Japanese Breakfast. This album is frankly all over the place and it's incredible for that reason. No two songs sounds remotely similar. Completely different construction and completely different genres. "Savage Good Boy" starts out with some vocals that sound like the Teletubbies playing a kazoo. "Be Sweet" is punk rock with a twinge of pop. And "Slide Tackle" is garage-rock with some drum and bass style beats and then randomly there's a saxophone. If you're looking for diversity in an album, look no further, you've found it. There's something new for your ears to latch onto with each song and with each new listen.
Bonus Content: Michelle Zauner, the face behind Japanese Breakfast, is a talented artist of many mediums. Right before releasing Jubilee she also released her memoir titled Crying in H Mart: A Memoir, which happens to be a New York Times Best Seller.
