Without a doubt, one of the most influential and impactful records in the history of emo, Braid’s Frame & Canvas was released 20 years ago to the day. Though I believe the official date was April 7th, 1998, April 6th is close, and Polyvinyl and the band are celebrating this. Consistently recognized as a staple of the genre, Frame & Canvas is celebrated far beyond our community.
You should read David Anthony’s article on Noisey about the record.
