About Battles

Website | Facebook | Instagram | Twitter | YouTube | Spotify | Apple Music

Helmed by Ian Williams and John Stanier, Battles ignore traditional genre boundaries to create music that's as engaging as it is inventive and technically proficient. Their lively sound combines and reimagines post-rock, prog, psych, electronic music, post-punk, and more in colorful, constantly evolving ways. Their 2007 debut, Mirrored -- the band's first and only album with Tyondai Braxton -- positioned them as avant-rock futurists, but following his departure, Battles broadened their scope. On 2011's Gloss Drop, they emphasized the catchiest side of their experiments with a cast of guest vocalists; with 2015's all-instrumental La Di Da Di, they proved their music had just as many hooks even without words. By the time of 2019's Juice B Crypts, Battles' lineup was down to a duo, but the wit and sense of adventure in their sound continued to grow.

About Air is Human

Facebook | InstagramYoutube | Spotify | Apple Music

Air is Human is Josh Aptner and Jeff Lucci; a duo that has been cultivating a sound that balances explosive beats and emotive Rhodes piano arrangements with bold, heavy, and atmospheric guitar melodies.  The music is focused and through-composed, but within the arrangements there is a looseness that allows the specifics to be improvisational.   Blending influences from downtempo and ambient with kraut and psych rock, from groups like Boards of Canada to Talk Talk, the sound is loud and enveloping, yet still maintains a delicate and cinematic quality to it.   The music aims to provoke each member of the audience to experience a uniquely personalized visual scene, or to compel a physical reaction: dance.   The duo still think Nels Cline is kind of a weener.
