I don't get excited a lot about music nowadays, but I feel it's my moral duty to spread the word around about Battles. The band is not a completely new kid on the block, I already knew the singles Atlas and Tonto, but never heard a full album since this week, which is a real shame. It's not the easiest music to grasp, in fact, I'm pretty sure a lot of people won't even make it to the half of one song when listening, but if you do, I promise your brain will be thankful eternally for the new musical experience. And otherwise, stick with established values like Sonic Youth, their new album The eternal really is a blast! But first, go watch the video of Atlas and if you make it through that and want more, Tonto is your next step.
