Battles fans, rejoice! Gloss Drop, the year’s most hotly anticipated record, is almost with us. Featuring guest appearances from Gary Numan, Matias Aguayo and Blonde Redhead’s Kazu Makino, get ready to fall in love again.


Capsule are excited to announce that Battles will be visiting Birmingham during their extensive worldwide tour.

Here’s footage from when they played back in 2007:


Young Montana? With an exhilarating new style that is raising the bar for sound collage artists to an unheard-of altitude, Young Montana? chops beats into being on a hypercolor canvas that is saturated with soul and lit with innovation.

Few producers can make music this multidimensional that is also fun on the dance floor, but 20 year-old Young Montana? works both the technical and psychological sides of the beat with equal finesse. Combining the rich hues of nostalgia from manipulated samples with futurized beat magic and an avant-garde style, Young Montana?’s experimental hip hop is smartly structured and swung out through a warm haze of grime, soul, folk, and glitched-out machinations.
