Song of The Day #090

"Platinum Rows" by Tyondai Braxton

I'm sure you've heard the sad news: that Tyondai Braxton is leaving Battles. And while Battles' other members (John Stanier, Ian Williams, Dave Konopka) are incredibly creative and talented musicians, Braxton was the band's "frontman" and, in my opinion at least, greatest talent. That opinion of mine is bolstered by songs like this song of the day, "Platinum Rows". Braxton follows in the footsteps of his father, Anthony, creating relatively unclassifiable and extremely complex music. This song moves all over the place, showing off Braxton's assuredness as a composer. He's an amazing musician, and I hope that Battles doesn't suck now.
