Sept. 23 Japanese Breakfast/Psychopomp

A soothing clash of 80s/90s synth tone rock and pop with a killer female vocal/lyricist. Immediately drew several connections to Alvvays and Blondie, but in a more unique, even experimental form. Apparently the word “psychopomp” refers to a guide for souls to the place of the dead, which alone connects this sense of death and loss to the album. A somber connotation that adds a second layer to this beautiful expression. Makes me feel like an extra in a scene from the Goonies.
