E002 - Michelle Zauner (Japanese Breakfast)

 

We talked to Michelle Zauner -- the front woman for Philadelphia dream-pop band Japanese Breakfast -- about how the music of Sufjan Stevens and Mount Eerie helped console her after her mother's death, her new sophomore record, Soft Sounds from Another Planet, and her planned memoir about cooking Korean cuisine.
