Video: Battles record special session for La Blogotheque

BattlesExperimental New York rockers Battles have recorded a Take-Away Show for al fresco video makers La Blogotheque and it’s something quite special, both for the band and the people behind the lens.

Normally, La Blogotheque film one-take field work music videos, giving the artists’ live performances a rough, almost improvised feel. But when it came to filming a live set from Battles, they took a different approach, filling Paris’ Hotel de Ville with tons of equipment and a towering speaker stack. And instead of one camera they used five.

The resulting videos are probably much closer to traditional music clips than what we’ve come to expect from La Blogotheque. Watch the two clips below:
