New Battles Video – “Tonto”

Where their classic clip for “Atlas” left Battles as illuminated and exposed as possible (well lit in a windowed ‘n’ Mirrored cube), the LP’s second vid flips the math-y equation, setting the NYC prog-groove heroes in a tempo-shifting triangle of minimal, cylindrical light. Yeah. Practically waiting for Mulder and Scully to roll up. Amazing live band, amazing album, sure … but these clips are making Battles look like freakish alien superheroes. May not be far from the truth.
