What do you do when a band member suddenly departs? If you take a step back and breathe, you might move on. For the three remaining members of Battles, singer/guitarist Tyondai Braxton's exit was exactly what they needed. Sparklingly technical and mind-numbingly joyful, their recent album Gloss Drop is, at its heart, a rock record. And while it was largely a studio creation, Battles brought its nuances and controlled freakouts to the Portishead-curated stage at All Tomorrow's Parties.

Set List
