battles-mirrored.jpgSay hi to the new prog-rock! Boasting members whose alma maters include such 90s experi-metal luminaries as Don Cabellero and Helmet, Mirrored is a full-length debut whose sound finds four players woven into each other's fabric with the most careful precision. Despite the premium paid toward virtuosity and exact electronics, Mirrored is highly playful and unpredictable. Complex and polyrhythmic but still catchy, it may not be everyone's cup of tea, but it rains like manna from heaven on those who can't stomach yet another introspective singer-songwriter.
