Battles - Ice Cream (ft. Matias Aguayo)
Battles - My Machines (ft. Gary Numan)

You know what? Gloss Drop is a surprisingly killer Battles release, in spite of last year's much maligned and almost universally fretted-over departure of Tyondai Braxton - but really, who the fuck cares, you know? Off-kilter, herky-jerky-quirky, mostly instrumental insanity, featuring guest vocal spots by Matias Aguayo, Gary Numan, and more... It's sufficiently weird and wonderful, and we're diggin' it a lot, no matter what your dumbass opinion of it might be.

Gloss Drop will be released on June 6th, courtesy of Warp
