And if you like what you hear, check out his latest album Monomyth: Separation, exploring the sights and sounds of Greece, an album he wrote during and after a 10-city tour of the country.
I caught the final moments of a live recording on Studio 360 while driving around on a Saturday afternoon. When I got to my destination, instead of turning off and exiting the car as I tend to do, I had to stay for the rest of the performance. I had to find out who the artist was. Turns out it was Braids, performing “Warm Like Summer” from their latest album Deep In The Iris. The blend of downtempo-jazz percussion, sparkling piano, and the beautifully haunting vocals and lyrics of leading-lady Raphaelle Standell-Preston creates a truly stunning sophomore release from this Montreal-based trio. Be sure to grab a copy for yourself from the group’s Bandcamp, or directly from Arbutus Records.
