Former Battles member Tyondai Braxton has announced that he’ll put out a new record, HIVE1, later this year. It’s his first solo album in six years, and his first since leaving Battles in 2010. The record is made up of eight pieces that were originally composed for a Guggenheim Museum exhibition called HIVE. “Scout1″ is the lead single, a squelching, minimalist 9-minute-long experimental collage. Listen below.
HIVE1 is out 5/12 via Nonesuch Records.
