Battles – “EP C/B EP” – [Warp Records Ltd]
Battles: math rock, post rock, art rock. Whatever. These two EP’s from 2004, brought together as a double album, are Battles as a foursome, including Tyondai Braxton. That’s early Battles. Exquisite interplay of guitars, bass, keyboard and drums, spilling out patterns, breaking them apart, overlapping, interpreting, adjusting. This is the project at it’s beginnings, establishing a foundation of what would follow. Calculate away.
