Battles. There I said it. Now here’s a question for Tyondai Braxton: If you wanted to become recognized as a “solo” artist so bad, how come you released that song Atlas with your band Battles? That certainly is a long, deep, dark shadow to try to crawl out from underneath. That’s not to say this “solo” album doesn’t completely rip also. It does. It’s just that every review or writeup is going to be all like “Imagine Battles… with an orchestra” or “New album from Battles‘ multi-instrumentalist Tyondai Braxton” blah blah blah. We certainly aren’t going to try to peel that monkey off your back, Tyondai. When is a new Battles album going to come out?
