Gloss Drop, the forthcoming album from super alt-rock group Battles, is a brilliant album featuring guest contributions from the dark synth-pop pioneer Gary Numan; Chilean born Kompakt minimal techno producer Matias Aguayo; cult indie-rocker Kazu Makino (Blonde Redhead); and Yamantaka Eye, from Japanese cult band, The Boredoms. The album is out on June 7 and Ice Cream [above] is the first single off it.
