WATCH: Battles show many sides of themselves in “The Yabba”

Battles are set to release their new full length album, La Di Da Di, this Friday, September 18, and I, for one, could not be more excited. I’ve loved almost 100% of the output that this band has churned out over the past few releases, and I’ve already spent some time with the new album thanks to the free NPR Music stream of the full disc.

The intro track on the new album is called “The Yabba” and the band has released an official video of the tune. And they’re touring very soon and coming your way, so don’t miss out while this band is still playing clubs.
