Battles "Atlas"

This song popped into my life by accident, via various year-end lists extolling its various virtues. But come on, the song is called "ATLAS". That aside, it's a pretty amazing piece of music, prog without wonkery, rocking without drawing too much attention to itself...and it's a 2007. And the video is quite striking, with the band packed into a box lined with two-way mirrors, juxtaposing some visual recursion with the musical. But don't ask about the lyrics.

They sound like Steve Reich with electric guitar. They are great live too.
