BATTLES – ep c/b ep – CD digisleeve

2xCD digipackwarp records2006


Formed in 2002 by Ian Williams (Don Caballero), John Stanier (Helmet, Tomahawk), Dave Konopka (Lynx) and Tyondai Braxton, Battles have garnered much critical acclaim–not to mention a devoted fan-base–with a series of seminal EPs released on various labels, that exposed their strange but compelling amalgam of rockist bombast and precision-made electro-rhythms. Now signed to indie giants Warp, the band release not their much-anticipated full-length but a combination of two older EPs, C and B. It’s a smart move, guaranteeing their odd, interplanetary sound is exposed to a wider audience before they forge ahead with any new material. Within the twelve songs featured here, the band move from electronic drone-pieces to unwieldy three-guitar rock thrash-outs and just about every other combination in between. Fearlessly experimental and impressively muscular, Battles won’t be for everyone, but for those who love the hypnotic voodoo and hypnotic rhetoric of bands like Can, they will be welcomed with open arms
