Live Video: Brad

photo by Jim Bennett

Brad has been playing their brand of muffled, blues-tinged rock for close to 20 years now, but unlike some of their contemporaries, they haven’t mellowed in the slightest with age. Stone Gossard’s guitar can still effortlessly switch between swampy and haunting, Regan Hagar pounds every note with an equal amount of fury and precision, and, perhaps most impressively, Shawn Smith howls like he’s not far from his deathbed. Perhaps most impressive, though, is the band’s ability to switch gears to play a softer, more earnest tune immediately after turning their amps up to 11. Watch video of a pair of heavy tunes alongside two quieter – but no less intense – numbers from the band’s stop at KEXP this past April below.
