Here’s a new EP from Braids, not to be confused with ‘90s emo legends Braid, their first new material since their much liked debut LP ‘Native Speaker’. It’s a very slick and highly produced proposition, with prominent female vocals, atmospheric synths and some very interesting percussive touches which really raise it above the usual indie-crooner fare.
Phil’s saying Sugarcubes and I see what he means, especially when the girl gets squeaky in the somewhat Animal Collective-ish ‘In Kind’, the liveliest cut of these four. On the other side ‘Amends’ kind of sounds like Tune-Yards trying to emulate Zola Jesus, which I can see being very appealing to a certain audience. Overall I have to say this EP is fine; it’s far from bad but it’s not blowing me away.
