Braids - "Peach Wedding" / Purity Ring - "Belispeak"

On October 10th, two of 2011's breakout acts will be releasing a split 7" under the Fat Possum umbrella. On one side, you've got the ghost-voiced future-pop of Purity Ring, who've already dropped one of the best tracks of 2011 in "Ungirthed." While "Belispeak" adds little new to the duo's arsenal of sound, it's nevertheless another consistent and provocative entry in the group's small but promising collection of singles. On the flip side, Braids—the young Canadian act behind hypnotic heartbreaker Native Speaker— drop another bit of their signature ambient, slow-burning, and emotive pop music in "Peach Wedding." "Peach Wedding," already a signature of the band's live set, captures Braids in top form: an otherworldly cocktail of sounds lush, vibrant, and intensely captivating.
