      Battles

      Juice B Mixed

        Battles, New York City’s preeminent experimental rock duo, drop a slick 12” of remixes from DJ Dairy & DJ Orient (black midi), Delroy Edwards, Shed, and DJ Nigga Fox.  The release sees the aforementioned artists using an array of sounds from across the spectrum of Battles’ latest LP "Juice B Crypts", released late last year. In utilizing the wide array of sounds, the remixers have created work that is not singularly indebted to one song or another, rather inspired by the sonic world of the album and serving as an extension of it. The remixers have utilized this creative freedom to the fullest, delivering a collection of songs that occupy distinctly different spaces of the electronic music landscape while retaining a shared connectivity to the original work. 4 uniquely individual remixes, remixing one of the uniquely individual bands of the new millennium, tied together by experimental spirit and a shared musical perspective. 

        STAFF COMMENTS

        Matt says: One of Warp's highly celebrated acts of late hauls in an imperative who's who of electronic music talent. A hype-list rightly deserved of their cult statuses - not a single one disappoints.

        Thom Yorke, Flea, & Wynton Marsalis

        Daily Battles (From Motherless Brooklyn: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

          “Daily Battles” was written by Thom Yorke (Radiohead, Atoms For Peace) for “Motherless Brooklyn” the film directed, written by, produced by and starring Edward Norton. The film features two versions of the song, each performed by musical icons of modern music. Thom Yorke along with Flea (Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Atoms For Peace) performs a sparse and emotionally stunning version of the song. The other version of “Daily Battles” was arranged and performed by jazz trumpet icon Wynton Marsalis, who, along with his hand-picked quintet of heavy-hitter-jazz-stalwarts delivers an instant jazz standard version of the song that conjures images of the 1950’s-era gin-soaked Harlem jazz club seen in the film.

          1. Daily Battles (feat. Joe Farnsworth, Russell Hall, Isaiah J. Thompson & Jerry Weldon)

          Battles return with their fourth album "Juice B Crypts" on Warp Records to follow their complex, mind-bending predecessors "Mirrored", "Gloss Drop, Dross Glop" and "La Di Da Di". Their latest album is a sensory overload of information that throws everything you thought you knew about Battles into flux once again. John Stanier's percussive power drives the LP through motorik, jazz and post rock, while the cubist keyboard and guitar melodies of Ian Williams capture the fractal pop majesty the group have made their own over the past decade or so.


          STAFF COMMENTS

          Barry says: While Battles' previous outing definitely tread more through the math rock spectrum, and sometimes suffered cohesion losses through it's jagged momentum, 'Juice B Crypts'leans slightly more towards the free-jazz end of things, with loungey grooves and deep rolling basses keeping a solid backline behind their characteristic madness.

            Gloss Drop

              New York six-legged rhythmic juggernaut Battles are one of the most exciting and respected alternative bands of recent years and they return with their second album ‘Gloss Drop’.

              The album ranges from lead track ‘Ice Cream’, a “grunty, squelchy, jubilant freakout” according to the NME, and Radio 1’s The Hottest Record In The World - a calypso tinged rhythmic juggernaut powering through the airwaves of Radio 1, XFM and 6Music, through to denser, more industrial tracks (‘My Machines’, featuring Gary Numan, is a prime example) – at times playful, at times hard-edged, but always unmistakably Battles.

              Outgoing member Tyondai Braxton’s vocals have made way for a host of guest vocalists, ranging from Numan to Kazu from Blonde Redhead and Eye from Boredoms.

              Battles

              La Di Da Di

                ‘La Di Da Di’ is a bold opus of post rock and virtuosic instrumentals, cementing Battles firmly amongst the most influential alternative bands of the 21st century.

                On their third album the rhythmic core of Battles is as full as ever. Opener ‘The Yabba’ is a gradual unravelling of math rock motifs that eventually explodes into the glitchladen ‘Dot Net’.

                The atypical ‘breather’ moment that comes with ‘Cacio e Pepe’ is an exploration in harmony anchored by Battles’ characteristic repetition, whilst tracks like ‘FF Bada’ and ‘Summer Simmer’ are examples of the thick textural richness that can be found throughout the album. ‘La Di Da Di’ humbly parades the many weapons of Battles’ musicianship for which they are so well revered.

                Dross Glop 1 - Gui Boratto / The Field Remixes

                  Battles follow a spectacular 2011, which saw the release of their acclaimed second album ‘Gloss Drop’, with a series of very special remix releases in 2012.

                  The series, titled ‘Dross Glop’, begins with a limited 12” featuring remixes of Battles tracks from Kompakt favourites Gui Boratto and The Field.

                  The entire series of tracks will be compiled and released later in the year as a CD album.

                  Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots

                    Oh joy. It's just as inventive, creative, unpredictable, refreshing and downright beautiful as "The Soft Bulletin". But! Hooray, it's poppier. It loses nothing but gains everything! (Also including a chunkier, tastier bottom end). It's so hard to review - it's just absolutely BRILLIANT. To put on your headphones and play and play and play again. All summer! Forever!!
