Video: Battles - "Ice Cream"

Luis Cervero, Nicolás Méndez, and Lope Serrano are CANADA: a production company and trio of Spanish filmmakers based out of Barcelona. Over the last year or so, CANADA has been behind some of pop music's most dynamic, rich, mind expanding, and always NSFW videos. To date, the peak of these filmakers' efforts has been the video for "Bombay" by El Guincho (though the Scissor Sisters' "Invisible Light" isn't far behind). The trio's most recent addition to their canon of psychedelic, nudie, lick-heavy videos is "Ice Cream" by Battles. I've never been a huge Battles fan, but the sharp, jagged, and manic rhythms of "Ice Cream" are beautifully supplemented here with CANADA's quick cuts and seemingly endless supply of questionable imagery. Watch the "Ice Cream" video after the jump, along with "Bombay" and "Invisible Light."
