We’ve seen Battles and !!! a bunch of times; enough to know when they’re both having an off night–a night like Friday, which was spent celebrating Warp’s 20th anniversary and songs that were clearly still-in-their-demo-stages. That said, !!! frontman Nic Offer retained his title as Brooklyn’s most shameless showman, and Battles still has a ton of bite left in their post-everything tracks. They just need to hone it all down to an album as brilliant as Mirrored before the year’s over.
