Steve Hauschildt, who splits time between his eponymous solo project and the Cleveland, OH-based Emeralds trio, gives us this taste of his forthcoming Tragedy & Geometry LP before it drops on November 14 via Kranky. “Batteries May Drain” boasts much of the same drifting analog synth melodies and indelible warmth that we loved on Emeralds’ Does It Look Like I’m Here? record, but without the guitar noodling and with some driving, krauty rhythms carrying it all into spacey oblivion.
