midweek music: ‘be sweet’
posted by soe 1:33 am

Last week, Japanese Breakfast, which is the stage name of Michelle Zauner, just kept popping up on my radar. Sometimes that happens for a reason. The Grammy Awards were coming up and maybe she was nominated for something. But she wasn’t. So then I knew it was just the universe trying to tell me to look into it. I try not to ignore the universe, because the universe doesn’t like being ignored and tends to have nasty ways of upping the ante. No, I don’t know what the escalation would have been for not following up on a band named after a meal, and I don’t think I want to. Do you?

Anyway, the universe was right and the video that was out for her (their?) single, “Be Sweet,” was campy ’80s fun. I thought I’d share it with you here, because clearly that’s what the universe wants to have happen. It’s like a chain letter, but cosmic.

Apparently, she performed this song on Jimmy Fallon earlier this week, but I think the video makes the song. But I’m sure she was also good live.
