so after getting totally psyched up on the Daytrotter session Bad Braids did, I am sad to say that Supreme Parallel was a little underwhelming! I’m not sure if it’s the mixing of the vocals, or the fact that it seems to get sleepier and sleepier as the album goes on, but by the final track I felt like all of the ideas/sounds had already been exhausted. this isn’t to say the album is bad - on the contrary, it’s a MASSIVE step up from Arrow and Orb and I am still very excited to see the talent that is Megan Biscieglia live this October, but I think a lot of her magic is lost in this release. just not sure if I’ll be back for more listens.
overall rating: schmeh.
