Read reviews of 'La Di Da Di' from New York Times, Mojo, DIY Magazine and more following its worldwide release on 18 September.
“the sounds of a band perfectly in sync with one another. This is easily Battles' best album to date, the one you've always hoped they would make. There is boundless oddity here.”
“La Di Da Di finds Battles arm-wrestling the urge to repeat previous efforts — and winning.”
“Cerebral and sweaty...Steve Reich with a battering ram”
"Battles thinks hard and kicks harder"
New York Times
“these three musicians don’t need a vocalist to have a voice”
Consequence of Sound
“...a stubborn embracing of all the weird things that make up this unique trio”
“...the songs comprising La Di Da Di are timeless vestiges of sound”
“[Battles’] sound now possesses a withering, caustic wit instead of a joyous, ostentatious cackle, and the suspicion is that it's only the start of an enticing middle chapter”
“Battles don't release albums so much as unveil science projects, demonstrating what unprecedented concoctions they've devised for us to marvel at.”
