Singles Lost in Time: Braid + Piebald

Hello and welcome to Singles Lost in Time, where we dig through our library here at idobi (like monks sifting through historical texts) and we dust off some absolute bangers that never got their proper time in the sun.

Braid – “A Dozen Roses”

Braid’s 1998 album Frame & Canvas dropped at the oddest of times for the emo genre. Considered a seminal second-wave emo album, it just missed out on the cultural emo zeitgeist of the early- to mid-aughts. “A Dozen Roses” is full of heartfelt lyrics and dissonant post-hardcore guitar.

Piebald – “American Hearts”

“This place has broken my American Heart. Piebald puts it as plainly as possible. And that’s why “American Hearts” is so powerful. The simple yet strong hook greases your neck for easy head-bob action. The straightforward lyrics are just as powerful now as they were 20 years ago. There’s a lot of work left to be done if we want to mend “American Hearts”.
