Slowdive
Slowdive are Neil Halstead, Rachel Goswell, Nick Chaplin, Christian Savill and Simon Scott. They formed in Reading in 1989 and signed to Creation Records, releasing three albums, 'Just For A Day', 'Souvlaki' and 'Pygmalion'. Since their disbandment Slowdive have become one of the most cited bands of the early 90's with the three albums appearing regularly in charts of the best records of the period.
Japanese Breakfast
A side project from her work as front woman of Philadelphia indie punk band Little Big League, Michelle Zauner released a tape in June 2013 under the solo moniker Japanese Breakfast. The tape was titled June and boasted thirty tracks written and recorded every day of the month. A stark deviation from Little Big League's guitar- based indie rock, it showcased Zauner's dark lyrics, unique vocals and inherent knack for pop melody.

Two bedroom pop cassettes later, Japanese Breakfast returns with its first full- fledged LP and vinyl release, Psychopomp. The album explores Zauner's experimental interests and hosts a wide range of sound: jarring anime samples, minimalist ballads, rhythms and synths reminiscent of Tango in the Night-era Fleetwood Mac paired with the moody intimacy of Mount Eerie. After the foundation of the album was built, Zauner enlisted Ned Eisenberg to coproduce and embellish the record. Eisenberg helped with the mixing and production of the album. Psychopomp revisits and revamps lo-fi tracks and adds chilling new songs to fall in love with.
