Native Speaker CD

Braids were formed by four best friends in their last year of high school, and Native Speaker, 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. "It starts with swirls of keyboards, bubbling aquatically, before Raphaelle Standell-Preston begins whispering naughty, wounded vocals. By the time the chorus first arrives. . . her voice has swelled to a forceful kick." - NY Times
