"Sounds like this decade distilled: the psychedelic Shiatsu of Animal Collective, the expansiveness of Broken Social Scene and a bit of the primitivistsnap-a-longs of High Places and the Blow" Fader
BIO: Although their debut album Native Speaker won't be released until 2011 (Kanine), Montreal-via- Calgary based BRAIDS was named one of Stereogum's 40 Best New Bands of 2010. Formed by four best friends in their last year of high school, their self-recorded and produced album is the product of months of meticulous craft-work to properly capture the band's entrancing live performance. Delicate layering gives their experimental pop epics just enough breath to playfully explore the depth of ambient melody. And while BRAIDS dives into moments of deep obscurity and sonic experimentation, there remains embedded within the music an unforgettable pop tune. Playing several show at this year's CMJ festival resulted in glowing reviews from NY Times, Brooklyn Vegan, Nylon, Spinner and more.
