Battles' Tyondai Braxton Readies Solo Album

Battles' Tyondai Braxton Readies Solo Album
Despite just joining the new Risil supergroup, Tyondai Braxton has revealed he's again breaking away from his Battles day job for a solo joint. The record is called Central Market and due out via the folks of Warp on September 15 in North America.

According to the label, the seven-track effort was composed, arranged and produced by Braxton and "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."

That said, Warp ensures us the poly-rhythmic, math-oriented stylings of Battles are still intact here, but now just presented a bit differently. At this point, though, how differently is basically anyone's guess.

This doesn't mark the first solo effort for Braxton, who in 2002 released History That Has No Effect.
