57: Braids: Deep in the Iris

Braids’ third album aims at deep music lushness infused with blasts of cerebral electronica but too often falls a little too short, instead occasionally calling to mind David Gray’s ‘Babylon‘, presumably unintentionally (because, really, who would you aim for that on purpose???). However, ‘Deep in the Iris’ contains ‘Miniskirt‘ which is such an amazing song both musically and lyrically that it makes the entire album worthwhile.

‘Fun’ Fact: Singer Raphaelle Standell-Preston has a name that sounds like she once sued Mark Zuckerberg for ownership of the Facebook brand.

TL:DR, can you just say the name of that great song again for people like me far too lazy to read 94 words? Miniskirt’, you absolute cretin
