I've honestly been waiting foréver for a new Battles record. Well, that isn't gonna happen any day soon, so I'll just consider "Central Market" as the follow-up to "Mirrored". On September 14, Warp will release the debut-album by Tyondia Braxton, frontman for Battles. Warp states: "Composed, arranged and produced by Braxton, the 7-track set features guitars, vocals, electronics, percussion and the Wordless Music Orchestra, unified to create orchestral music re-imagined for the 21st century, and perhaps the 22nd as well. Central Market introduces Braxton as an exceptional addition to the world of New Music composers, while maintaining a strong hold on the poly-rhythmic and technically awe-inspiring creations he is already known for."
