Battles are the Networked Band, or perhaps the-band-as-network. An island chain linked by a unique combination of artistry, experimentation, technology and singular focus. A band that holds computerized loops in their brains, leaves sweat on their machines and whose sonic heartbeat is almost brutally human.

Dave Konopka, Ian Williams and John Stanier have turned the tables on themselves this time, confronted their own ideas of what Battles is – and here on their third album (out September 18), have willed an answer to that question into existence. As the name might imply, La Di Da Di is a mushrooming monolith of repetition. Here is an organic techno thrum of nearly infinite loops that refuse to remain consistent. The rhythmic genus of Battles is here as ever; full frontal, heightened and unforgiving – the gauntlet through which melody and harmony must pass, assailed at every turn.
Buke and Gase
Buke and Gase
Buke and Gase is Arone Dyer and Aron Sanchez. We are
based in Hudson, NY, and are having a lovely time.

Another Dyer Dream:
murderous rampage inside an orphanage
a young boy built a pair of wooden airships to help him fly
out the skylights.
men after him: he was me; i was him.
it failed the first time and he'd lost one of the planes;
several toothpicks raced to the floor.
but then it worked, i think.
meanwhile, deep in the beige orthodox ghetto,
the madame went to hunt me down
and i glimpsed her using a wine merchants bag to conceal
a gun
while she shot someone else point blank.
inventions, inventors
wacky seeming situations
i slept well enough last night without sleeping pills
so i'm happy about that.
deprivation has its positive side,
and i'm going to withhold my opinion of it.
The Californian drought is shaking his finger at my multiple
showers throughout a day;
although they have their reasons.
