Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Audio Mixers: Seth Manchester; Keith Souza.
  • Recording information: Machines With Magnets, Providence, RI.
  • Photographer: Lesley Unruh.
  • Gloss Drop, the second full-length album from Battles, finds the band returning as a trio after singer/guitarist Tyondai Braxton announced he was leaving the band to return to life as a solo artist. On Gloss Drop, the band fills the empty space left behind with a number of intriguing guest stars, including Gary Numan and Yamataka Eye, adding a new dimension to their already far-out sound.
Professional Reviews
Spin (p.94) - "GLOSS DROP is an immersion in abstract tonalities, with Tropicalia-touched dark minimalism, tetchy arrhythmic strings, and propulsive funk."

Entertainment Weekly (p.100) - "GLOSS DROP, with its syncopated beats and chiming new-wave keyboards, dials up the warmth from their math-y, angular debut and injects far more humanity than most dance records allow." -- Grade: B+

Alternative Press (p.107) - 4.5 stars out of 5-- "Well paced and thoroughly engaging, the Braxton-less Battles have accomplished the seemingly impossible with GLOSS DROP: They've actually gotten better."

The Wire (p.44) - "'Toddler' recalls The Residents, while 'Rolls Bayce', with its stuttering drums and zaps of music-box melody, sounds like the group justifying their presence on the Warp roster....A triumph, and a major evolutionary leap."

Paste (magazine) - "Gary Numan lends his robotic howl to 'My Machines'...and Matias Aguayo transforms into a biological drum machine on lead single 'Ice Cream.'"

Record Collector (magazine) (p.87) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "GLOSS DROP is an exuberant joy....This time around there's a sense of visceral abandon from the outset, which is at once thrilling and more accessible."
