Last week, Battles performed a series of 4 unheard tracks from their forthcoming record La Di Da Di in a NYC rehearsal space and subsequently streamed them online for 24 hours only. In the lead-up to the highly anticipated LP release they’ve re-shared a cut from the session, and as you watch the band perform ‘The Yabba’, it’s hard not to feel a welling of anticipation and childlike giddiness. The David Raboy directed live shoot of The Yabba provides a luminous glimpse into Battles world of cascading, math-inspired rock. I’m yet to see a live video better than this in 2015.

Battles will release La Di Da Di through Warp via Intertia on September 18th.
