Egrets on Ergot release video for "Mangkukulam," debut album out on 10/27

"Mangkukulam!," chants art-punk quartet Egrets on Ergot over a relentless barrage of rolling toms and thudding bass lines. The term stands for someone who is a practitioner of low magic or sorcery in Filipino culture, a striking motif that presents an alien and uncompromising vision. Their loping, practically instrumental rhythms hit with a snarling energy without losing a keen sense of groove, casting a dark spell that engulfs your senses with each and every primitive shriek.

"Mangkukulam" is the lead-off track off of Egrets on Ergot's debut album Surfeit of Gemütlich, which comes out on October 27 via Cleopatra Records. Watch the official video below.
