Braids w/ Mark Matt Webber
Braids released Native Speaker in 2011. They have reinvented themselves in their second full length. The group sought to explore a more introspective and electronic approach to songwriting. Sonically the songs are delicate and tight, lyrically they are honest and vulnerable, demonstrating the group’s emotional growth.
