#283: Japanese Breakfast, “Jubilee”

Michelle Zauner’s first two albums as Japanese Breakfast sounded promising, but not really that exciting – not that it aimed at that. But, as soon as the horns in “Paprika” kick in, you can’t help but feel this *is* the breakout album we were waiting for from a stellar songwriter. Ironically enough, it was the inward-looking, gorgeous slow burner album closer “Posing for Cars” that made us pick “Jubilee” as our album of the week. Go get it.
