Braids, the Canadian experimental pop group who released
have reinvented themselves in the making of their second full length. After 18 months
of touring in support of
their debut, along with the departure of a band member, the
group secluded themselves in their Montreal studio for a year of writing and recording.
was written in an organic and live environment, the group sought
to explore a more introspective and electronic approach to songwriting. Sonically, the
from these sessions
are delicate and tight, yet
open up to the rich
lushness reminiscent of their older material. Lyrically they are honest and vulnerable,
demonstrating the group's emotional growth and maturity since their last record.
As they head out in anticipation of their sophomore album – due Fall 2013 – their new
songs will be played, fully live, in an exciting time in music as the gap between real and
synthetic narrows, leaving room only for the pure energy driving the performance.
Kodak To Graph
Allured by pulsing incantations of cassette grain & VHS blips, live instrumentation and other found sounds, Kodak To Graph's Michael Maleki (22) delicately floats listeners through blooming clouds of synth-washes, haunting reverberations, and propulsive rhythms. Maleki's candle-waxed R&B & flower-trailed soundscapes weave together the nostalgic tones and colors reminiscent of a quiet childhood with the urban bounce and rhythmic disposition of the more modern spirit.
