Braids, and Purity Ring (two bands we've been really digging this year) are set to release a split 7" on October 10th via Kanine/Fat Possum Records. Kanine (Braids' label) will handle digital sales, while Fat Possum will be in charge of the physical 7". Download Purity Ring's offering at the top of this post. Stream Braids' HERE.

Earlier that same day, just like Telekinesis and Marissa Nadler, Braids will play a FREE (as always) Epitonic Saki Session at Saki Records. Contact the store for more details.

Purity Ring will be in town on October 14 to open for Neon Indian at Lincoln Hall. Tickets are still available.
