The new album from Braids was featured by Stereogum as last week’s Album Of The Week. “[Shadow Offering] feels like the culmination of what Braids have been building towards over the last 10 years,” the site said. “It’s glimmering and assured, an album that’s constantly refining and one-upping itself. The Canadian band’s songs have always been massive, bursting at the seams with ideas, but they’ve never sounded as good or as crystallized as they do on Shadow Offering… These songs sound huge and are full of gorgeous textures and grandiose, almost operatic bids at transcendence.”
