    Experimental prog rockers Battles will be releasing a four part 12" series of vinyl remixes starting 2/6. Two tracks off of the first entry in the series, Dross Glop 1, are now available for streaming. Their last original LP Gloss Drop was released June of 2011 as the follow-up to their critically acclaimed debut full-length Mirrored in 2007.

    "Wall Street (Gui Boratto Remix)" is a lengthy but fun electro-rock track to which you can easily see yourself dancing the night away. With no vocals (the group has been without a lead vocalist since the departure of long-time member Tyondai Braxton and instead relied on guest vocalists for the last album), "Wall Street" will worm its way into your ears with its melodic dance beats. "Sweetie & Shag (The Field Remix)" is more exhaustively long (it clocks in at nearly nine minutes) and a little slow on the pick up and heavier on the intricate sonic details. You may not want to dance to it at the techno raves like "Wall Street" but if you take the time to strap on a pair of headphones and really explore thecomplex depths, you'll see it has something to offer.
