Central Park SummerStage
Battles ignores the rules of tempo and timing, creating an abstract and timeless blend of instrumentation, computerized beats and manipulated voices, to craft a uniquely organized sound. In 2006, the band released their debut album EP C/B EP, a collection of obscure EP releases. Their new full length album, Mirrored, has attracted international acclaim.
Black Dice, formed at the Rhode Island School of Design a decade ago, have two albums out: Broken Ear Record and Manoman. Now based in Brooklyn, the sonic groundbreakers push the limits of experimental sound in rock music by focusing on only a few notes per song mixed with doses of distortion.
