Battles - Juice B Crypts

Record of the Week is the joyous and explosive return of Battles with the tightly wound new Juice B Crypts. A duo these days, they welcome some amazing collaborators onboard this time; Tune Yards, space hip-hoppers Shabazz Palaces, the breath of fresh air that is Xenia Rubinos, Americana grandee John Anderson, Prairie WWWW and Sal Principato, all changing the flavours throughout. Battles are one of the very very very few artists out there who can take a huge set of influences, inspirations and voices into the chopper and delivery something that is genuinely more than a sum of its' parts. Gnarly, chopped up and thrilling stuff this.

+ We have an indie exclusive pressing on transparent vinyl.
