As we drift further into May, we open up our music libraries and hit “Play” on some fantastic new music from April 2018! Today, Jim talks about his favorites by the Moondoggies, shoegaze from Winter, and a Cranberries cover from Japanese Breakfast.
FUN FACT: In an interview with Teen Vogue, Michelle Zauner of Japanese Breakfast discussed the origin of the pseudonym…
“I think I just wanted something that sounded kind of curious, like something that sounded really American and well-known, like breakfast, and combining it with something that I think American people just associate with something exotic or foreign. I thought it would make people curious, like “What is a Japanese breakfast?” Japanese Breakfast is quite like beautiful and I really enjoy it. I think I was just looking at pictures of it one day and was just like, “Oh, I’ll just release this album under this name.”
