What we said:
When Battles lost a key member last September, many predicted it would spell the end for arguably the best math-rock outfit of all time. Fortunately, the remaining members regrouped and are now proving those doom-mongers wrong in spectacular fashion on Gloss Drop. To fill the space once occupied by Tyondai Braxton, the trio traversed the globe to recruit an eyebrow-raising array of guest vocalists including Yamantaka Eye, frontman of Japanese noise-rockers Boredoms, and our very own Gary Numan. And, as they mash together funk, tropicalia, rock and a gazillion other genres with all the gusto of a band given a second lease of life, Battles prove more thrillingly skittish than ever here. They may be a man down, but there’s no way you’d ever guess.
