We Fled Cairo – Adult Braces (Review)

The first time I saw We Fled Cairo live was (coincidentally) on April 20, 2008.
They opened for Woodhands at Zaphod Beeblebrox.
Two years has passed for the duo of Dave Mandia who plays Guitar, Bass and sometimes Drums & Richard Monette who plays Drums.
They finally released something substantial called Adult Braces.
Apparently its stated as an EP, feels more like an LP since its eight tracks and pass 30 minutes.
Adult Braces is a indie experimental instrumental post-rock album.
Very trippy, grungey and shoegazing sound.
Being an instrumental album, the duo sure knows how to make interesting song titles.
Not sure if the beginning track is a social commentary of Ottawa’s eating habits.
Overall I am surprised to how well done Adult Brace was made.
Get the album!

Lastly I wonder which one of them is wearing “Adult Braces”?
