I’m always drawn to originality and a contemporary beyond the new, especially in the fine art of painting, but also, just as importantly, in music. Pushing the boundaries of what is rock, Battles create a sound I think a group of five year olds would make if they had twenty years musical experience.

Experimental, progressive, invigorating and exciting, Glass Drop, the second album from Battles, continues and expands from the mold of their first LP, Mirrored. They have the unique post rock sound kindergarten children would love to party to!
