About this album

Gloss Drop is the second studio album by American experimental rock band Battles. The band have announced a spring tour in support of the record. It is the band’s first release since the departure of Tyondai Braxton. Most of the album is instrumental, but vocals are provided by various guests performers, including electronic musician Gary Numan and Blonde Redhead’s Kazu Makino. “Ice Cream” was the first single to be released from the album on May 23, 2011 (2011-05-23), in both digital and 12” vinyl formats. The vinyl was limited to 3000 copies, and was notable in being released in three different “flavors”. Barcelona-based directorial collective CANADA produced a video for the single. It includes the B-side “Black Sundome” and an instrumental version of “Ice Cream”. The second single released was for “My Machines”, featuring Gary Numan, which came in digital and vinyl formats with an instrumental version of the song and an unreleased track titled “A.M. Gestalt”.
