Psychopomp came together that year in rural Eugene, where Zauner revamped songs from her previous lo-fi releases under the name Japanese Breakfast. In collaboration with musician Ned Eisenberg, she pushed them beyond their original scrappy basement confines into shimmering gems. If Zauner's palette has largely softened, her subject matter hasn't, even though only two songs here deal specifically with the death of her mother. Nevertheless, Psychopomp bites harder when Zauner lets you feel the weight of her pain. She turns the lens on herself on "Jane Cum," the record's most hopeless, cathartic moment, where the starry shimmer slips away, and heavy, staticky storms envelop her yearning voice.

Runt Little Sparkly gems, each and every track. stargazing robot This album feels like a soundtrack to fading memories, better times and less good times as well. I quite like the title track, which opens up the melancholic part of the album.
Released April 1, 2016. Psychopomp Tracklist. I started putting together Psychopomp in December 2014 after my mom passed away from a very sudden, painful and brief battle with cancer, said Zauner in an interview with KAMP Student Radio. Thus the album’s title, referring to a mythological angel who guides deceased souls to the afterlife, is especially fitting – and in more ways than one.

Psychopomp is a 25-minute-long dream-pop album that feels like much more: a sharp-edged exploration of how loneliness and longing form into brittle personal shields.
