Battles Live @ De Kreun

Went to see Battles live, yesterday. It was batshit insane, one of the best parties ever! That drummer, oh man... You saw they struggled at times, because of the loss of a member, but when the music hit, it hit hard. Below is the setlist.
1Battles
Gloss Drop


Africastle - The opened with the album opener, set the mood real well.

Gloss Drop


Sweetie and Shag - Played at twice the tempo. It nearly became DnB, insane party track. The guest vocalists were projected onto the LCD screens, which they could manipulate. Impressive stuff, early highlight

Gloss Drop


Dominican Fade - The tempo kept rising, and it was like Hawaï in the club. Felt as hot as well.

Atlas - Needless to say, the crowd went wild, and with good reason
5Battles
Gloss Drop


Wall Street - One of my favs on the album, and they nailed it. Man, good times!

Tonto - That other classic. Great version, but sadly they fucked it up near the end...
7Battles
Gloss Drop


Ice Cream - In which they proved why it is probably the single of the year.
8Battles
Gloss Drop


Inchworm - Seamlessy mixed with the voice of Matias Aguayo. Another fav on the album, also fantastic.
9Battles
Gloss Drop


My Machines - Always found this track a bit boring. Live version was better than the album version, though.
10Battles
Gloss Drop


Futura - Last song they played. Even better than on Gloss Drop. One of the funkiest rhythms ever.
11Battles
Gloss Drop


Sundome - The only encore, but they extended it with nearly seven minutes or so. If it were up to me, they could go on forever. The end to a magnificent liveshow.
