Exclusive mixtape for Le Guess Who? and Drowned In Sound: Braids

They keep on coming in! This time it's Braids who we and Drowned in Sound asked to create a mixtape. And they did.

Braids, a group of talented young musicians, was nominated for this years Polaris Music Price. Their debut album combines shoegaze, artrock en Beach House-y dreampop. Two elegant fairies and two skinny ├╝ber nerds know their way around polyphonic vocals. It’s the core of their drawn-out songs build upon jazzy drums and transverse electronics. Despite the tricky phasers and drones, Braids is actually very danceable and uplifting.

Listen to their mixtape ft Zomby, James Blake and Burial below.
