Stephen Wood's band The Battles (Soft Abuse), in the light of the looming success of the towering fury of Battles (Warp) has regrouped under the moniker Giantess and is readying a new full length out on Soft Abuse October 9th. Continuing in his post-glam hangover songwriting style, Wood has created another pop shamble that matches his last effort wonderfully. Mixing a knack for hooks and a love for the experimental pop bent, Giantess proves to be a change in name only as Wood's spirit and wit remain fully in tact. Somehow each Battles release remains a sleeper album that people finally get into months after their release, but to tell you the truth those are usually my favorite kind of pop albums.
