Battles' Tyondai Braxton Readies Solo Album
Published Jun 17, 2009Despite 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.
