Mixtape: Battles FACT Mix
There’s a craving inside all of us for a little more Battles. Recently the unstoppable trio were invited to perform a FACT mix session for Fact Mag and boy did they deliver.
Last year Battles saw the successful release of Gloss Drop, their second dance-rock album with guest contributions from Gary Numan and Blonde Redhead’s Kazu Makino among others. In a spooneristic delight, Dross Glop was released this year with an abundance of remixers, reinterpreting the trio’s addictive songs.
The FACT mix session sees Battles stepping up, turning out a tasty selection of the kind of tunes the band have been devouring of late, focussing primarily on artists who appear as remixers on Dross Glop. Better yet, if you’re a Hud Mo fan, there are three previously unreleased tracks in the mix.
