I love the way Race : Out starts and builds up. It's a digital song at its core, but less than a minute into the song we're introduced to drum rolls. As the drums pick up their pace, the song shifts forward and the listener is thrown into some crazy whirlwind of keyboard tunes and spurts of electric guitar. Next thing you know the song just fades out and you're left with your pants down wondering--what the hell just happened? Ok, maybe you still have your pants on ...
Favourite Part: I'm a sucker for drums (along with piano and violins) and I just love the way they're utilized in this song.
Battles released their debut album, Mirrored, last year. They're a quartet of multi-instrumentalists who, prior to Battles, were members of other bands.

Just as an FYI: from now on, if you don't see the little iMeem player embedded in the post, then the song title in the text will provide you with a link to another source for you to hear it. Otherwise the link will send you to Amazon.com where you can purchase the song. Hope that makes sense!
