high expectations of this new japanese breakfast which i’m tucking into now
I’ve yet to hear it. I saw them three times last year. Brilliant live. Good to see that they’re playing relatively bigger gigs now.
I saw Japanese Breakfast at a back of a pub venue on a Friday last year and the next day saw them as part of Visions Festival where I took this. I think it’s The Oval Space.
Listened to this a couple of times now (once with Observatory Destroyer to catch a glimpse of that live set you saw) and it’s definitely much doom-ier (especially pt.2) than their previous material. Those John Carpenter esque synths before that relentless drumming kicks in during pt 1 are fantastic then it just continues to build and gain more momentum from there on!
