the tangled wires & entrails of Battles’ previous records have been pulled out, flung against the wall & scraped into an unruly pile to be trodden on – but the rhythmic core of Battles is as full as ever.

on 1st few listens, this entirely instrumental album didn't grab us but then we found we were guilty of judging it against 'mirrored' (our 2007 album of the year) & to a lesser extent 'gloss drop' which we never quite learned to love as much. clearly, without tyondai braxton, they are a different proposition but in the end, this record kept calling us back in for further exploration & the multi-layered, abrasion vs. melody dance beats have had our heads nodding, toes tapping & minds warping. this is a sonically diverse collection of dynamic beats that should appeal to fans of fuck buttons, suuns or foals' jerky instrumentaion. "infectious oddness....technical wizardry, menacing squelches, wonky techno stomp & cosmic fairground wonder" - nme, "cerebral yet sweaty" 8/10 - uncut.
