Battles is a funky post-rock/experimental/math rock collective featuring the guitarist from helmet and tomahawk, john stanier, among others.  Their music is quite experimental to say the least, with lots of weird rhythms and quirky guitars.  They are a 4-piece rock band that almost sounds at times like progressive electronic.  I think they should be included in the archives, especially because they are a post-rock band that does not revolve around build-ups and crescendos like Mogwai, EITS, GYBE, etc.

The mp3 located here is not their best work, but it is representative of their overall sound:
