Warp Records have been kind enough to oblige by re-releasing Battles' classic EPs. A luxurious 2 CD compilation of the B EP, C EP and topped off by both tracks (one on each cd) from the Tras 12" - this is everything a Battles fan could possibly want and a perfect way to dip toes into their weird and wonderful world. There is nothing better than hearing these EPs together in a sort of album form, they always felt so lonely as fragments so contextualised here they finally feel complete.
From the initial disjointed maniacal dance of 'SZ2' on the first disc we are already deep into the Battles universe; obtuse but insanely accurate drumming, looping chops of guitar and the all important organs. Shortly after this we are quite unexpectedly treated to Battles' foray into early electronics-style experiments with 'Bttls' and the cd ends on a high with 'Tras' - probably my favourite of their tracks; an upbeat organ led floor stomper of a track which is hopefully a number one hit in a parallel universe. The hugely acclaimed 'C EP' appears on the second disc and kicks off with the shockingly technical elven march of 'B+T' yet another unmissable Battles moment. The wonderful talent here commands you to take notice - this is great, brilliantly original raw music that's is certainly not the last we will hear from what will soon be the name on everyone's lips.
