Well, it’s finally here, after four long years, the math-driven band Battles has returned with their second full length album titled Gloss Drop. And after a few listens, I have to say it’s pretty amazing. Though not as surprising as their last intense LP Mirrored, but it’s not far behind. The new songs find the group honing in their sound. With the departure of vocalist Tyondai Braxton, the trio has introduced many more new soundscapes, and feature some notable guest vocalists.
