  • LOVE Braids. Every album is different, and every one is wonderful. There's so few bands who are willing to be as daring as Braids, and much less who are and also pull it off so effectively every time!

  • Sore Eyes is such a great song! I'm really enjoying this band's evolution so far!
  • OMG miniskirt <3
