[caption id="attachment_2658" align="alignnone" width="385" caption="Battles "Gloss Drop" Warp Records"][/caption] Known for deconstructing rock, punk, and electronic, taking it to the garage and stripping its fancy parts, the math-rock supergroup [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Battles[/lastfm] experiment with new blood--one with Chilean sweet vocals. His name is [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Matias Aguayo[/lastfm] and on the first song from the forthcoming album Gloss Drop called "Ice Cream" we get sticky prog-rock gone haywire, a bonanza of vicious riffs and made-up words. What an interesting treat! But, that's the Battles for you. Gloss Drop is the second album from this New York trio whose debut album Mirrors received critical acclaim in large part due to their experimental take on everything from electronic to punk, rock and experimental music.  We won't see the new album drop until June 6th on Warp Records, but here's some free "Ice Cream" as well as some tour info to tie you over until then!
