It seems like all eyes (and ears) are on Battles
as they get ready to release their second album, Gloss Drop
next week (after suffering the loss of a fourth of the band). Here is the second part of this take away show produced by La Blogotheque and shot in the Bertrand Salon of Paris' City Hall, The Hotel de Ville. The band had been playing for over four hours before they filmed "Futura", and you can see how exhausted they were by the droop in their popped collars. Even so, there's something twistedly beautiful about the juxtaposition of their surroundings and their sound. Check it out below.
Devotees rejoice, the highest cymbal in the world makes several appearances, despite the close cameras.
