Slideshow> Braids @ SXSW 2011: A Lesson On Why This Stuff Is Called 'Shoegaze'
Montreal must be a dreamy place, seeing that it inspired the ethereal, warm-Sunday-pleasant-mushroom-trip sound of Braids. The Canadian band of four echoed their way onto everyone’s radar last year and built internet hype that exploded at SXSW this year. Subsequent explosions continue as the band remains on the road with electronic mastermind Baths.
Yeah, Baths and Braids. You would think that there’s some kind of quip you could make with those two names, but I’ll just save you the time, there isn’t.
