EGRETS ON ERGOT: Serve Us Tender: LP

Egrets On Ergot are one of a more recent crop of local (Los Angeles) bands taking the back roads of the city’s underground, where shit is often grimy and a bit off. Their trip is a dark one, filled with comparatively loose song structures, tribal rhythms, muttered or barked vocals, and non-traditional guitar lines awash in reverb. It’s a great entry by a band smart enough to know not to take all that post-punk dejection and drama too seriously or to strip it of all the rough, gristly bits.
