June 18 street date. Limited 10th anniversary edition of the album that put them on the map, Braids'’ debut LP "Native Speaker". Original designer Marc Rimmer re-worked the LP packaging with a high gloss record cover and a brand new lyric sleeve complemented by eye-popping coloured vinyl. An astonishingly accomplished debut from a young band, "Native Speaker" laid out some of Braids' core interests, including a meticulous attention to sonic detail and a rhythmic curiosity. As their later discography would reveal, this debut also set the course for a great deal of growth, change, and an ever-evolving sonic identity. Meticulously produced by the band, Native Speaker emerges as an extremely potent concoction of playful, lavishly orchestrated, and deeply cinematic pieces - all without a sample in sight. The album oscillates between textural density and heavenly spaciousness to construct an unforgettable pop tune.
