Battles return with their fourth album Juice B Crypts on Warp Records to follow their complex, mind-bending predecessors Mirrored, Gloss Drop, Dross Glop and La Di Da Di.

3 They Played It Twice (feat. Xenia Rubinos) 3:09

4 Sugar Foot (feat. Jon Anderson & Prairie WWWW) 5:18

5 Fort Greene Park 5:45

6  Titanium 2 Step (feat. Sal Principato) 3:26

7 Hiro 3 1:08

8 IZM (feat. Shabazz Palaces) 3:36

9 Juice B Crypts 3:56

10 Last Supper On Shasta Pt. 1 (feat. Tune-Yards) 3:52

11 Last Supper On Shasta Pt. 2 (feat. Tune-Yards) 3:55

awesome track, glad we finally hear a tune and have a release date. was unsure how they'd sound after dropping to a 2-piece, but they've still got it!

and they're headlining a festival i'm going to next week, can't wait!

Yeah I really like what I'm hearing!! The vocalist did a great job on this too. Wonder how the whole LP will turn out tho with their reducted line up! I loved Konopka, it was so sad to hear he left!

Lol yeah.

Next album will probably be an hour of Ian Williams' guitar jams with a volca drum machine, and the band will disappear as soon as Williams will split up with himself!

^ as awesome as those two are, ive never been able to get into the instrumental band but with a bunch of guest vocalists style of album.  mirrored they all worked as a cohesive unit which is part of what made it such a great album.

on thaaaat note, i just realised i never gave ladidadi a chance.. partly because i thought the album art sucked.  i didnt realise it was an instrumental and a bit of a "return" to their earlier stuff. am i missing out there?

last album was one that i loved when it came out, kinda forgot about for while, then came back to in a big way. they haven't released anything even close to being not great imo

yeah i really like what tyondai brought to the band on mirrored. to me his vocals were the final ingredient that really made it all work so well and i don't think they would be as notable as a band without his contribution. goddamn that album is great, super ahead of its time. for so long i had detested "modern music" and wasn't interested in anything that wasn't from the 90s and hearing mirrored was genuinely exciting. and now there is the nostalgia bonus of being reminded of my late high school years where everything seemed possible and there was still some bloody hope in the world instead of this nightmare cesspool reality we've fallen into.

i was into battles before the vocalists and always kind of preferred it instrumental. EP C / B EP is my favorite of their stuff.

I like their instrumental tracks. This album looks like it is going to have too many guest vocalists for my tastes..

I’m not against vocalists. Some of my best friends are vocalists. That said...

can't wait. Really glad to see so many guests again. I really dug that approach on Gloss Drop (their best IMO) and I thought it was sorely missing with La Di Da Di.

Song sounds good, but I'm also fearing the Tune-Yards features. 😖
