Battles have been a pretty interesting and evolving band for a decade or so. Today they released the stems of their new album.
Sort of poppy dance music for nerds and musicians? Drummer was in Helmet, instrumentalist was in Don Caballero. Lots of live looping and complicated rhythms.
I haven't heard this new album but really like the previous two. They don't have any surround mixes... but they are about to if anyone wants to play around!
(Jon Anderson sings on the song Sugar Foot...I know - only one song - - but if that wasn't in the headline no one here would care, haha)

That's cool. The only album of theirs I know is Gloss Drop, which came out just after founding member Tyondai Braxton (son of Anthony Braxton) had left. Back then they were still regarded as the quintessential "MathRock" band, although they don't like that label. Hmm...who among the QQ regulars has the training and/or experience to mix from stems...?

I tried downloading the tracks/ joining the contest, but I can't seem to find complete stems (just little snippets/samples)...
If anyone figures out how to get the complete stems, please post it

SORRY. After downloading them I see that the vocals aren't included. It looks like the concept is more about the innerds of the songs, not the complete songs. Damn, still cool but less cool. My apologies.
Files are 88/24 wavs, FYI. This would be perfect for folks who use Ableton Push or something like that.
