Battles – “Ice Cream”

By brandon / March 10, 2011 - 9:29 am

Vocalist/guitarist/etc. Tyondai Braxton left Battles to work on his solo orchestral and otherwise compositions, so for second full-length Gloss Drop, the remaining trio of Ian Williams, Dave Konopka, and master drummer John Stanier added guests vocalists, including Chilean-born, Kompakt-associated techno producer/singer/DJ Matias Aguayo. He gives it a go on sunny, funky “Ice Cream,” the most immediate pop song of the lot.
