“Diving Woman” by Japanese Breakfast might be my new favorite song right now. If you listen to hoards of new music like I do, you know that when a song hits you in all the right places that it causes you to stop what you’re doing and say out loud, “Holy shit, this is amazing” isn’t an ordinary occurrence.

The solo project of Michelle Zauner of Little Big League, this particular song by Japanese Breakfast pulls from the best of the ’90s – breathy, female singer-songwriter vocals, bass-forward melodies, and echoing electric guitars that add more texture and atmosphere rather than melody. Dare I say this song is perfect? With close to 2 million streams on her Spotify account, I doubt I’m the only one who thinks this.

Also on the bill is lo-fi dream-garage pop artist Snail Mail and Football, etc., who sort of remind me of first-wave, early ’90s emo in the vein of Mineral. This bill is lit, go to it. Go now.

$13-$15, Wed April 11, 8pm, Paper Tiger, 2410 N. St. Mary’s St., papertigersatx.com.
