Michelle Zauner wowed us last year with "Psychopomp," her heartfelt debut LP as Japanese Breakfast. She's back this year with the aptly titled new album, "Soft Sounds From Another Planet." Zauner mixes hypnotic space rock influences with her indie pop melodies to create an interstellar listening experience.

Japanese Breakfast visited the CPR Performance Studio in June before a show at Denver's Larimer Lounge. Zauner and her band played three songs from the new LP and spoke with Jeremy Petersen about how she initially hadn't planned on making a second Japanese Breakfast album and how the program to colonize Mars influenced the record.
Stream the session and watch Japanese Breakfast perform "Body Is A Blade" above.
