Battles provides reference guide to Mirrored

Posted May 22nd, 2007 by eric

Asked by Guardian Unlimited to pony up the secret decoder for what makes its debut, Mirrored, tick, Battles throws out ten reference points, which predictably range from the obscure to the amusing to the nonsensical. Among them:

The art of neo raunch

“If there was ever an example of what the music of Battles “looks” like, it would be the work of German painter Neo Rauch. He was born in Leipzig in 1960 and his paintings perfectly combine his Socialist/Soviet realist past with a psychedelic, ultramodernist view of the future. Like our music, there are no rules to be seen or felt here.”
