VIDEO: Battles “My Machines” [featuring Gary Numan]

Posted September 7th, 2011 by eric

Battles’ second LP, Gloss Drop, somehow seems to be achieving underrated status when it’s easily one of the best records of the year. Hammering that point home is the band’s new single “My Machines,” which features the one and only Gary Numan on vocals. This is an album highlight for me, as it’s one of the album’s more aggressive musical tangents, and I love Numan’s unorthodox vocal line. The video wins just for placing Gary Numan in the mundane context of a shopping mall, replete with shopping bag.
