Video: Demdike Stare "Hashshashin Chant"

Let's just get this out of the way. Yes, this is another found-footage music video. That said, we all know that audio-mining UK duo Demdike Stare isn't going to serve up some half-baked collage of YouTube clips with some iMovie effects on it. The video for "Hashshashin Chant" is more like Clockwork Orange meets a psychedelic tribal rave. Think of it as a nightmarish vision quest that can be enjoyed via the relative safety of your computer. Plus, it's another chance to revel in the song's foreboding tribal stomp, a real highlight of Demdike Stare's Voices of Dust album. If you missed that one, or any of the three(!) full-lengths the group released this year, don't fret; they're all being compiled (along with 40 minutes of additional unreleased music) into a three-disc set called Tryptych, set for release January 24 via the Modern Love imprint.
