BRAIDS share new video for “Taste”

Braids bare all in their new music video for ‘Taste’ directed by Kevan Funk.
View at the following link: https://www.nowness.com/story/braids-taste

“I see this as a series of scenes of various people (all different ages, races, orientations), mostly in their homes, naked. I see it as these scenes that would almost feel a bit like portraiture, these images that have a mixture of being beautiful and in someways haunting. Maybe just people alone, maybe together, not entirely sure. I like the idea of the viewer projecting this idea on to the individuals, that refrain of ‘we experience the love that we think we deserve’ somehow leading us to assume the type of life these people have had, who and how they love and have been loved.” – Kevan Funk

Happy album release day to Michael Stasis!

Listen to “RIP III” via The Line of Best Fit here: http://www.thelineofbestfit.com/news/latest-news/michael-stasis-streams-arbutus-records-debut-rip-iii-in-full-premiere

Grab LP & CD here: http://arbutusrecords.com/?shopp_product=michael-stasis-rip-iii

For his first release on Arbutus, RIP III is the third in a “greatest hits” series. Presenting a broad range of material, from playing with trial software in his bedroom to learning from acclaimed producer Jorge Elbrecht and stumbling into a thriving community in the Bay Area, Michael has drifted through many scenes to collaborate, perform and grow, all patiently under the radar. Largely self-recorded, his restless output (over two hundred songs) has jumped sonically and stylistically, leaving some listeners to wonder if it’s the same artist at all. Stasis calls it “playlist mentality”, a fractured approach borrowed from current listening patterns and dwindling attention spans. This intuitive tactic, he hopes, will keep people interested, rather than lamenting a bygone era of classic anything.
