Math Rock, so called

Battles EP

Most interesting rock music I’ve found lately is by Battles, a band that appears to be classified as ‘math rock’.  It does sound very precise, with standard g/b/d instruments, few vocals, and pushing toward Steve Reich/Philip Glass types of repetition.  But it does have some juice to it, I think.  Worth a listen.

Pitchfork likes it, for what that’s worth.
