According to Dave Konopka, the track Sundome on Gloss Drop was spliced together from two of three "Sundome tracks." Apparently this was a song that was going on forever, but they reigned it in and made one mega song for Gloss Drop and a shorter song for this single. That shorter song is Black Sundome, and it's pretty damn awesome.

Another interesting fact: Sundome wasn't named using the Boredoms' common theme of naming every track after the sun. It it the name of a basketball league in Brooklyn and Dave thought it sounded cool. Kind of ironic considering Eye from Boredoms did the vocals on it. However, there are no vocals on Black Sundome, and there aren't any drums either. Just good old fashioned spaced out guitar and keyboard loops. You'll totally dig it.

No, Battles' single "Ice Cream" is not as good as "Atlas." That's because that song was perfect. This song has a silly side to it with a playful keyboard riff. The song starts off like a locomotive picking up speed. Once it kicks in, drummer John Stanier really carries the song. The guest vocals are a nice touch, but I also like the instrumental version, which allows one to zero in on all the complicated parts. Hey, it's Battles. What else do you want?! These guys are miles ahead of most bands.
