It's been a little over two years since we released a record by a young band called Braids, and much has happened in the interim. We had high hopes for Native Speaker, and were happy to find that people loved it as much as we did; the album, written while the band was still in their teens, brought them rave reviews and tours all over the damn place.
After a year of hard work in the studio, Braids have a new album in the works, and we get to give you a taste of it with a 12" single: In Kind // Amends. With two album tracks and two exclusive ones, it clocks in at almost 25 minutes, and represents a pretty huge leap forward for the band. In addition to sounding great, the 12" LP is beautifully packaged with two spot varnishes on front and rear, photography by Landon Speers and design by the incomparable Marc Rimmer.
You can pre-order it here.
We are happy to announce that we have 20 of the Chris Reimer limited edition cassettes available in our store. This tape was compiled by friends after Chris's passing in February 2012, and represent a tape-only albumof solo ambient work that Chris had been working on compiling for several months.
This special cassette is limited to a run of 200 copies, and also includes a download code. (You can also buy it and get an instant download here: http://chrisreimer.bandcamp.com)
