The Stuff of 2011: The Video for "My Machines" by Battles

Sometimes the best music videos are the the ones with the simplest concepts. Like say, a guy falling down an escalator. For a really long time. Kind of like the vertical version of OK Go's treadmills, but, in this case, with '70s synthpop star Gary Numan singing along to the math-rock of Battles.


You'll find the rest of our "Stuff of 2011" posts here. If there's something you enjoyed this year that you'd like to share, write something about it and email it to us at by December 21. We'll post some of our favourites.
