Flourish // Perish


Braids


Amoeba Review

08/19/2013

Spare, precise, progressive, electronic pop. Montreal's Braids do something like extracting Kid A from more recent Animal Collective records and filtering it through the icy chanty trends of 2013's independent music space. There's a density of composition and performance here, squeezed into relatively short songs, coupled with production that remains sparse, giving it the feeling of being produced by a real band, humans beyond the studio walls. Skittering IDM tendencies have made some reviewers talk about this record as "prog," which isn't a totally foreign concept to Flourish//Perish, but the intricacy here is more precious, something dizzying both in its complexity and delicacy, lace or snowflakes. It's an interesting record and I'd certainly enjoy seeing them explore their latent Gabriel-era Genesis. Read More
