Braids. The band. Not three interweaved strands of hair. If you haven’t heard about them already, then I guess you can consider today your lucky day. This Montreal-based band has been getting quite a lot of attention from the blogosphere in the past couple of moths. ‘Why’ you may ask? Well, simply because they’re from the greatest city in the world uh-may-zing. Amazing. (Actually they’re originally from Calgary, and moved to Montreal a couple of years ago)

Here’s “Lemonade”, an ambient and somewhat baroque track, with a very catchy melody, in which you can hear influences from bands such as Animal Collective. This hypnotizing  blend of sounds flows near the seven minute mark.

Their fist LP, Native Speaker, drops on January 18th.
