Watch a New Video from Cottonmouth, Playing Go Bar Wednesday

After the demise of the Birdhouse Collection, several acts associated with the volatile and experimental-minded musical collective either imploded or went silent. But there have been rumblings of rebirth of late, with goth-punk faves Muuy Biien dropping a stellar second LP later this month and garage-pop miscreants k i d s re-tooling their lineup and sound (yet again) and readying a new album, reportedly called Take Forever.

Cottonmouth, Jacob Deel’s noise/beats/avant-pop/whatever project, is back, as well. Last week, Deel released the Skin EP, the precursor to an upcoming full-length titled Man-Cub. That’s the cover art above; you can listen to the EP here. Below, check out a rather disturbing new music video for “Firce,” the record’s industrial-inspired opening track.

Cottonmouth plays Wednesday, Apr. 9 at Go Bar as part of RITVALS’ monthlong residency.
