Braids

Daily Listen: Drrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

Look. From time to time this is gonna happen. The last time it was because The Arcade Fire sort of broke our brains. This time it's because The Arcade Fire's fellow Polaris Prize nominee's Braids kept us up late with our brains spinning.

The upside to this is that I can tell you that Braids is absolutely the band you must see right now, especially if you are fans of Bjork, Kate Bush and/or Sigur Ros.

The downside is, well, you know.

We sincerely apologize for this, and promise to return you to the same awesome Daily Listen you've grown to love on Monday...unless Virgin Fest breaks us...which it might. 

Sincerely,

The ChunkyGlasses Family


Live Music: Braids @ DC9 TONIGHT!

Looking for something to do tonight? Well look no further. Coming to us all the way from Montreal(that's Canada folks) the band Braids is taking over the stage at DC9 tonight in support of their album Native Speaker. With a style that draws as much from shoegaze bands of the 90's as it does Bjork and Animal Collective, the band has an engaging sound that we're excited to see how it plays out live.

Oh yea. Almost forgot. Native Speaker was recently short listed for The Polaris Music Prize, which is sort of Canada's way of saying that they really freaking love the record. Sounds like a winner to us

The show starts at 8:30 with Pepper Rabbit opening, so get there early.

Check out the video below to get a taste of what's in store for your evening with Braids.
