They've been called everything from "deliberately obnoxious" to "pure art rock sunshine". BATTLEHOOCH unabashedly walks the line between pop sensibility and avant garde experimentation, bending the chaotic into the melodic and evoking passionate responses in everyone that hears them.
For their self-titled sophomore album, BATTLEHOOCH sought to capture the raw energy of their infamous live show without sacrificing their characteristic musical sophistication. After polishing new material on tours across the west coast, the band returned home to San Francisco to lay the tracks down mostly live in the studio. The result is an incredibly rich and dynamic record that recalls musical shapeshifters like Os Mutantes, Fiery Furnaces and The Mothers of Invention while never shying away form the opportunity to roll out sweet vocal melodies and considerate songwriting. Look for them on their Summer 2010 national tour.
