Ten-second takeaway 

Look out for some experimental and computer rock music this weekend with the Brooklyn-based band, Battles.

Musical battles

Founded in 2002, the American band comprises guitarist/keyboardist Ian Williams, guitarist/bassist Dave Konopka and drummer John Stanier, and the trio is going to be in town this weekend {their first time in India, in fact} to give you a dose of their unique sound. With computerised loops and beats that is part of their unique style, Battles is more than just an experimental rock group; think groove-heavy beats which is an interesting combination of artistry, experimentation and technology.

On the playlist

Expect tracks from their latest album, La Di Da Di {released in September 2015}, described as an organic techno-thrum of constant loops. Some of them are Summer Simmer, Tyne Wear, Dot Com, and The Yabba. To kickstart the evening, look forward to an opening set by the Bangalore-based post rock group, Space Beyond The Yellow Room. With limited early bird tickets up for grabs, we suggest you hurry before it’s too late.
