On a longer album, this kind of pre-game stretching would’ve been hard to swallow, but the EP’s brevity, and the angular and beautifully syncopated Universe of Worse, makes the whole thing easier to handle.

Braid have returned from their absence with this little ditty of an ep titled, Closer To Closed. Four songs of interesting composures and quality over quantity. I honestly had nothing to expect beforehand since the band ended on a high note with the album, Frames and Canvas, and Hey Mercedes picked it up, only to break apart before I ever took notice. I guess I secretly wished for something harder like their second album, The Age of Octeen, but instead got an entirely different beast. Time to grow and develop as human beings is a part life and it’s reflected on in many ways

Even if Closer to Closed is just a four-song EP, come on! Chris Broach in the building! Unfortunately, the brevity of Closer to Closed only makes it easier to remember that this is also pretty much the same band as Hey Mercedes, a competently forgettable Vagrant latecomer that made Everynight Fire Works, a record I haven't listened to in a decade mostly because I recall it sounding a hell of a lot like this. This" mostly meaning market-tested emo-pop with the emotion and pop aspects sterilized by an unwillingness to commit to either. Of course, it might be just as easy for you to point out that I'm a grown man and wanting Braid to pick up and recreate 1998 on the rebound is no more rational than my college friends expecting me to knock off that bottle of Goldschlager and somehow shake it off before that huge presentation the next morning. But are you seriously asking Braid fans to not care so much?

At four tracks, Closer to Closed just gets the listener warmed up before it ends all too abruptly. The tracks are interesting and well-developed, and it’s hard to stomach the fact that this is not a full album. Purists will note the change in sound; Braid has hung up their lo-fi production values. This record reminds one more of recent Get Up Kids-or, at times, Death Cab for Cutie with a hell of a lot more energy-than it does Fugazi or other 90’s bands. Opener The Right Time, in particular, sounds very little like Braid’s older music. And not to knock their previous material, but that’s not.
