Braids - Native Speaker

The 2011 debut release from Braids.

"Less than two weeks in 2011, and Braids may already have sewn up album of the year honours with Native Speaker." -

"Their debut takes the beatific psychedelic washes of Animal Collective back to the testy clatter of punk-folk wild women the Raincoats — an at times nutty, at times serene, mash-up of pastoral guitar babble, minimal orchestral drones, loopy chorale vocals and porous, roiling rhythms." - Rolling Stone
