Braids


#1

Is anyone going to see BRAIDS this/next week, who are on tour with KT Tunstall

Subthread: have you ever paid £30 to specifically see a support band?


#2

I’ve seen them! THEY WERE SO GOOD! One of the best gigs of the year for me. Have you seen them before?


#3

Not seeing them this week, but went to that ATP pop up gig last year and they were immense.


#4

Yes! Much love for BRAIDS. They’re pretty intense live.


#5

Yeah, I think my friend may have seen them at that too! Hence why he suggested we go to the gig a wee while ago.

I would definitely go and leave before KT Tunstall :slight_smile:


#6

Only have their last album, but I love it. Not seeing them unfortunately.


#7

Aye it’s a corker


#8

Sure you would :wink: Thinly veiled KT Tungsten fan^


#9

One of the best bands I’ve seen live in recent years. Raphaelle’s voice is incredible. My jaw actually dropped at how mind-blowingly perfect it was.


#10

Wheesht! :stuck_out_tongue:


#11

New Braids track - love it. They are consistently excellent.


#12

I paid £25 twice to see Beach House support both Grizzly Bear shows at The Roundhouse when Teen Dream came out. Seen them before that album but really wanted to see them then. I walked out before Grizzly Bear started their set both days.

I loved Braids first album. Saw them again as a support band at that time, way back when ATP weren’t huge arseholes and when they promoted good gigs that would take place.


#13

Still need to listen to the new tracks! Which is weird seeing as how I love this band a hell of a lot.

(I was going to listen to them on Bandcamp in the library, but was quite aware of there being a naked arse on my monitor)


#14

I absolutely adored their first album, but didn’t really enjoy the next two much, sadly. Just didn’t seem to click with me.


#15

I love a few of their songs but IMHO still yet to put out a great album. Here’s hoping this is the one!


#16

This is fucking brilliant. Loved deep in the iris as well. Excited about this now.


#17

I bought Flourish / Perish basically at a whim, and that’s how I got into them. It’s a shame that album at least seems to be a bit of a bad memory for them (they didn’t play anything off it when I went to see them a year or two ago) bc that album has a really similar feel (wintry, creaky machine-like eeriness) to Kid A


#18

Oh my Gods, these new tracks are incredible. Thank you so much for posting!


#19

Definitely would have stayed for KT Tunstall


#20

Such a good band…each album has its strengths and they are all little worlds within themselves. Will stick these two new tracks on later
