Pre-Order Braid Cassette Box Set!
Posted 09/02/2015

We've been working on this one for a while now and we're pumped to finally be able to share it with you! The new Braid cassette box sets are here and available for pre-order now!

These are limited to just 500 and feature all 6 Braid albums on cassette for the first time ever! Our friends at Deep Wood Workshop helped make an incredible custom box with original art by Jay Ryan to hold all the tapes. Seriously, these things are SWEET! Head here to pre-order and get an instant download of all 97 songs at checkout. Yeah!

Albums included in box set:

  • Frankie Welfare Boy Age Five (White Tape)
  • The Age of Octeen (Yellow Tape)
  • Frame and Canvas (Royal Blue Tape)
  • Movie Music Vol. 1 (Dark Red Tape)
  • Movie Music Vol. 2 (Orange Tape)
  • No Coast (Rhodamine Red Tape)

Here's what Braid's Bob Nanna has to say about the box set:

"Braid has always kept meticulous track of all of our releases, editions, formats, etc.

Right now we are up to about 6000 or so combinations, give or take a thousand. And so it SHOCKS me that over the course of the past 22 years of our existence, a Braid song has never been officially released on cassette.

Sure, we did cassette demos in 1993 and 1994, but those ultra limited versions were destined for the garbage cans of record labels that decided not to sign us, and thus, unofficial.

Polyvinyl to the rescue, then, and Polyvinyl to the rescue, now!

And all 6 releases to boot in a beautiful wooden box, with art by Jay Ryan, coincidentally the original bass player of Braid, despite his quitting after our first practice because he "couldn't count to 5 1/2." True story. We're really psyched with how this turned out and we hope you enjoy it."
