Bad Braids is a Psych Folk project out of Philadelphia and consists mainly of Megan Biscieglia and sometimes friends helping her out to add instruments and sounds.

Right now she is on tour through Europe and between Prague and Paris she visited us in the backwoods of the Ore Mountains to serenade to the audience of our tiny, cozy gallery in Schwarzenberg.

Her set was beautiful, dark and haunting. I had no real idea what to expect, because I only listened to her stuff briefly when she contacted me to play at our place and I liked her whole presentation so I said yes. But her solo show was quite minimal and much more intense than her folky albums which are already pretty dark, psychedelic tales that just get more colorful because of the use of different instruments.

On this tour she got accompanied by a cassette recorder on two songs, but else it was just her strong voice over a strummed, mostly undistorted guitar. 

Download the bootleg from that evening and see some videos and photos there.

If you are into Marissa Nadler, Grouper or similar projects you should check out Megan's music.

Both of her albums are on bandcamp and you can pay what you want to get them. She is also ready to release a new album when the right label is found and maybe you'll catch her on her tour through Europe.
