Ian Williams of Battles Interview Saturday, June 09, 2012
A prominent character of the Chicago music scene, Ian Williams played an important role in the Pittsburgh-born, Chicago-based math rock group Don Cabellero before founding experimental noise trio Storm & Stress and instrumental supergroup Battles. With a plethora of EPs and two LPs under their belt, Battles recently released a remix album, Dross Glop, to follow up their 2011 sophomore full-length Gloss Drop. About to embark on another U.S. tour with a first stop in Chicago, Williams took some time to chat about playing after the departure of guitarist/vocalist Tyondai Braxton, collaborations on Gloss Drop, and the Chicago music scene. Recorded on May 24, 2012.
