For reasons that aren’t entirerly clear, Braids were recently filmed playing their great “Plath Heart” in a paintball arena in French Canada. I guess it’s sort of like looking at post-modern art while listening to post-modern music? Or something? But honestly, I’ll take any opportunity to put Braids in your face again, since their Native Speaker is one of my favorite albums from 2011, a sprawling, inventive and trippy record that marks Braids as one to watch. And this video is certainly shot really well, which is more than you can say for some live videos that hit the net. So there.
