Batter Recharger is a high-energy band from Brooklyn. Jamie Matson plays keyboards and Forrest Gray plays electric guitar. They take turns playing the drum set. Both of them sing and rhyme with a wide pallet of influences.
You can hear glimpses of Laurie Anderson, Vialka, Roy Orbison, and Jon Spencer in their songs. They sound like a mixed tape.
Batter Recharger makes tape loops. They create a loop from their quarter inch reel-to-reel, and manipulate the tape. The process is performed live and each memeber has a microphone. Their words morph into one another; sounds speed up, stop, and change. Batter Recharger's tape loops are lyrical, dream-like and contain warped aspects of the dream-world.
Improvisation is a large part of the Batter Recharger sound and each song breathes and changes from night to night depending on that day's energy. Their music is energetic, raw, emotive.
