Battles unleash their much vaunted third album La Di Da Di for Warp. Twelve tracks that, whilst sticking with the group's trademark blend of organic repetition through playful melodies and seriously flexible drumming, continues the journey started on Mirrored and continued on Gloss Drop to excavate a sound built around infinite loops of experimental instrumentation that sounds quite unlike anything else out there today. La Di Da Di is an album that will satisfy fans of old while giving newcomers a perfect entrance to the unique musical world they inhabit.

I really like how it builds up layers over a simple beat and then gradually gets that Battlesy signature sound. It almost reminds me of printer sounds crossed with some heavy drums at a circus while watching an 80's synth mtv video.

It's gonna take people a while to get past the "no vocals" thing, but sing those hooks the same!
This is a great album that gets better with each listen. They've really highlighted their looping style.
Hard to pick favorite Tracks, but I might choose Summer Simmer and Megatouch
