Back in ’07, a little band called Battles created quite a stir in the music industry. With their quirky munchkined-out math rock, Battles created one of the finer albums in recent memory in the form of Mirrored. Well, for anybody who has been wondering about/begging for/eagerly awaiting a new studio effort from the Brooklyn based proggers, your prayers have been somewhat answered. Well, not reealy, but big fro’d frontman Tyondai Braxton is readying his second solo LP, Central Market due out September 15th via Warp Records.
The set is said to feature the various sonic manipulations-contorted speed vocals, looped grooves, and stomping drums-Braxton is famous (or at least somewhat known) for, and the effort also sees additional help from The Wordless Music Orchestra, the fine folks who helped out with Jonny Greenwood’s “Popcorn Superhet Receiver”. It should be one tripped out adventure!
