Battles
La Di Da Di

Battles are back! The second record produced by their trio format, La Di Da Di is as bright, as colourful, and as listenably complex as ever. The first track references horrifying Australian film Wake In Fright, which is a promising way to begin. CD or double gatefold LP with bonus breakfast-themed p...view item »

Dross Glop

Dross Glop gathers together all the remix EPs of Battles Gloss Drop album, and what a cast they’ve assembled. Shabazz Palaces, Hudson Mohawke, Kode9, The Field… They even get Yamantaka Eye of Boredoms ...view item »

Battles
Dross Glop 3

The Battles remix project continues with installment III featuring Silent Servant, Kangding Ray and Qluster. If I'm honest I could do without an ongoing Battles remix EP project. Not been overly fussed with the other EP's but this bodes a little better with the inclusion of Qluster. Silen...view item »

Battles
Dross Glop 2

I'm getting a little jaded by the 12” remix project. There seems to be tonnes of them about at the moment and they don't really add anything to the albums they purportedly are promoting. Here, Battles are reworked in by various luminaries. Firstly The Alchemist does a dark take on '...view item »

Battles
Dross Glop 1

Last years 'Gloss Drop' LP didn't really register with me for some reason. I guess it seemed a little patchy with all the personnel issues and what not. Saying that, they still sounded amazing live so perhaps I should revisit the beast. First, lets chunter on about the remix 12” a l...view item »

Battles
Gloss Drop

AKA The Difficult Second Album. It's a potential banana skin for most, if not all bands playing music on this blue planet that we call eerrmmm... earth. It can't be avoided as it's the next number after one. Battles have also shorn a member, Tyondai ...view item »

Battles
Ice Cream

I've never really got Battles. I like the odd tune here and there but overall I've been enormously underwhelmed by 'em. I think I need to see them live as that's where it all happens. One day! Well they're back without Tyondai Braxton but with Matias Aguayo...view item »

Battles
Tonto+

Battles are back with their experimental hilarious brand of electronic rock. Tonto+ is well noodley prog gear. In fact noodles and prog some this up quite nicely. It doesn't have the same munchkin novelty value of Atlas though you can enjoy that crazy tune again on the bonus DVD which features rock videos of both tunes. The CD has 6 tracks inc...view item »

Battles
EP C/B EP

Battles. Warp's latest supergroup signing release EP C/B EP on double CD.  Philip says this sounds like 70's prog rock and I think he's right. Don't let that put you off though as there are some rewarding moments on here. Its not particularly challenging music to listen to and yet the arrangements sound extremely complex.&nbs...view item »

Battles
Mirrored

Battles: "Mirrored" debut long player for Warp is finally out. A fine live proposition, recorded, their sound is only slightly more contained. The dynamic is a play-off between the pulverising polyrhythmic percussion and the melodic interplay of the munchkin vocals, keyboards, guitars & effects. At times seeming to contain elements an...view item »

Battles
Atlas

An eagerly anticipated 12" single that precedes their much anticipated debut long player for Warp by BATTLES: "Atlas" in which tribal drumming is backed by Wizard of Oz munchkins on vocals in a chant-along incomprehensibilty. It's not until the drop when the guitars and bass add a bit of much needed dynamic that the guitar inflection...view item »
