If you like any of the following bands, you will probably like Battles.
I've been listening to Battles since their 2007 album "Mirrored" was their only full length. They have of course since released the album "Gloss Drop", although the removal of Tyundai Braxton has certainly left a hit on them (They are still an incredible band though!)
With some sort of Childish Toy Pop, Battles seems to hit light heartedness in the same chord as complexity. Using variations of loops, samples, effect-manipulated vocals, and all sorts of other techniques, seeing Battles live is a performance that you won't want to miss if they come to town.
You can read about my experience at the Battles concert here, and I recommend that you do!
My first experience was with the song "Tonto", and was immediately drawn into all that Battles had to offer. I think they have a little bit of something for everyone.
For those that are big into just the "Hits", Gloss Drop will have plenty of Vocal driven singles to keep you enthralled in the catchy tunes.
If you are a music elitist who only wants the cream of the crop, you've found them. Battles is everything you've been looking for.
If you need a push to get yourself out of a depression, Battles can probably do that. It's some incredibly fulfilling music, with driving drums and catchy vocals.
My name is Andrew Muller. I love creative art, music, television shows, movies, video games, and a good story.
If you had to find me somewhere, you would probably find me down at O'neils home cooking eating an organic sweet-potato bun breakfast sandwich with ham.
Among my friends, it's a "Muller Classic Move" to eat Mcdonald's at 2am because it's cheap and open 24/7. The joke here is that I'm an idiot.
I play drums, guitar, piano, and I write & perform music for My Goal Is Telepathy. Take a listen to the latest sound here.
