Over the course of two albums and multiple EPs, the New York City-based trio Battles have been refining their intricate, propulsive music to a degree of precision few bands ever hope to achieve.
Their upcoming album “La Di Da Di” promises to be a continuation of this process and is described as a mushrooming monolith of repetition, an organic techno thrum of nearly infinite loops that refuse to remain consistent.
Battles are drummer John Stanier of Helmet and Tomahawk, guitarist/keyboardist Ian Williams of Don Caballero and Storm & Stress and guitarist David Konopka of Lynx. All members bring their honed-in angular math skills of past glory to Battles.
Battles love to experiment. In 2007, the New York-based band released its debut album, mirrored, a conglomerate of dissonances, countless changes in tempo, vocals changed out of recognition, and plenty of rock’n’roll madness. In September, Battles are about to release their third album, „La Di Da Di“.
