Today we visit Gloss Drop, the new record from Battles, and their first sans visionary singer/guitarist Tyondai Braxton. Despite the loss, the battlers continue a reign of awesome.

In general, the record is full of slow-building layered sounds that eventually erupt into insane gut-punching tidal waves. YOU KNOW. At least that’s the case with album opener “Africastle.”

Re: the cover art — not sure if that’s supposed to be silly string or creepy bubblegum or what the hell, but I suppose that’s the point.
