Art rock. It sounds like a dirty word, invented by people who think that some types of music are simply too difficult. But “difficult” can also be a synonym for “adventurous” or “challenging”. Pukkelpop fans have known this for years. And Battles has been churning out exciting cuts for a whole decade: a bit of postrock, a bit of experimental jazz... but always with an overdose of originality. Moreover, the rhythms are extremely danceable. Now just tell that to your lover!
