  2. Battles with Gary Numan “My Machines”

    Great song. In fact, the entire Gloss Drop album is fantastic. The highly amusing video, part of The Creators Project, features a poor soul who is bested by an escalator. These guys are awesome.

  6. Battles “Ice Cream”

    NYC’s Battles’ first cut from their new album, Gloss Drop. Everything about it screams summer: the song is bouncy, the visuals are beachy, full of almost-nudity, and shots of chicks licking things, including ice cream (duh).
