POZ Review: Braid - No Coast

by Zack Zarrillo - Jul 14, 2014

by Zac Lomas, edited by Erik van Rheenen

Sometime during the past two years, the phrase “Emo Revival” emerged from the punk community’s woodworks.  Some might say the now (in)famous term was coined right here at PropertyOfZack, while others say the expression just appeared out of thin air, making its way into internet punk lexicon as if it had always been there.  And now that the “Emo Revival” is in full swing, giants from the 1990s emo explosion have rubbed the sleep from their eyes and joined the Second Great Melancholy. However, unlike fellow legends Texas Is The Reason and American Football, Braid are not content with just a reunion tour — they want the want to do the whole shebang and No Coast, their first studio album in sixteen years, is the result.

No Coast is not some symbolic, celebratory first pitch at a AAA baseball game meant to appease a nostalgic crowd, but rather it is a bright new take on a time tested formula that Braid, themselves, pioneered.  Bob Nanna and Chris Broach trade guitar licks that sparkle like a freshly popped bottle of vintage Dom Pérignon throughout the album, proving that their ability to craft delicate hooks has not gone anywhere.

Nanna and Broach were practically of the same mind and body on seminal album Frame and Canvas, and while their personal relationship over the past decade and a half may have been tumultuous at some times, their musical chemistry has never withered.  The vocal exchanges between Nanna and Broach are spot on; the two singers play off of each other’s talents, while maintaining their place as two of emo’s most unique voices.  Songs like “Lux” and “Many Enemies” showcase the duo’s earnest deliveries that often come off like a sincere lover pleading with their partner to stay for just one more night.
