Montreal-based four piece Braids are set to release their debut LP Native Speaker on January 18th via Kanine Records. Although the album’s seven songs, which you can stream over at hypem, are all beautiful in their own respect (Raphaelle Standell-Preston’s voice is simply amazing), Vancouver’s Teen Daze has weaved his own sound into Braids’ with an brilliant remix of the third track off the release, ‘Glass Deers,’ which takes the tune to a whole different place. He’s cut out the slow buildup of the eight-minute original, getting right to the point with some funky synths and reinvigorated beats that turn the original, which is mellow at times, into a proper jam. I’ve heard that Braids were amazing at cmj so I won’t be missing them when they come to Boston next month! Make sure to check out their February dates with Starslinger and Baths and you can pre-order Native Speaker here.
