Albums: Keith Richards, Battles and The Jimmy Cake

20th September, 2015
Battles: music nerds Ian Williams, John Stanier and John Konopka

What do you get when you stick three music nerds in a studio with very little in the way of distraction for months on end? A Battles album, is probably the answer. The music created by Ian Williams (guitars, keyboards), Dave Konopka (bass, guitars) and John Stanier (drums) is weird, experimental and sometimes otherworldly, but it’s also pretty incredible at times, and third album La Di Da Di is their most satisfying yet.
