The sophomore full-length from Braid, The Age of Octeen is marked by its passionate vocals, excellent wordplay, dueling guitars, and a relentless rhythm section; powerful sounds with a heart of gold.

Once the heir apparent to the post-Fugazi/Jawbox throne, Braid only recorded one more album (Frame and Canvas) before deciding to call it quits in the Summer of '99.

Braid's line-up for The Age Of Octeen features singer/guitarist Bob Nanna (Hey Mercedes, Friction, The City On Fim), bassist Todd Bell (Hey Mercedes, Mary Me), drummer Roy Ewing (Very Secretary, Days In December, Mary Me) and guitarist Chris Broach (L'Spaerow, The Firebird Band).
