FUCK! I almost forgot! Battles is playing at Billboard tonight in Melbourne. If you're not going, you have noooooo idea what you're missing out on.
Basically, the New York Math Rock / Post Rock / Future Funk / Instrumental / Experimental / just plain mental / just plain brilliant quartet of superb musicians in their own right have taken the world (my world at the very least) by storm since their debut full length album dropped on May 14th 2007. Voted one of the best albums of the year (and possibly the decade) EVERYWHERE.
Not for the lighthearted though, as Battles seem to have about 32972 different things going on in each song, their live show is bound to be a voyage to remember. Think of what a deranged circus performance would sound like. Check out if you can still get tix from moshtix sellers (listed here) or just rock up and hope you get lucky. Seriously, if this is the future of music, I like where it's going.
