Water Borders - "Feasting On Mongeese"

On first listen, Water Borders' "Feasting On Mongeese" sounds pretty much like how a song with that title, by a band with that name, should sound.  That is to say dark and creepy.  That drag/witch house label Tri Angle Records is releasing Water Borders' full length later this year only confirms the freakish vibe.  And yet, there's a lot more than just pitch-shifted vocal samples and tribal beats going on here.  There's a cornucopia of sonic bits that hint at animalistic murmurs and Eastern instrumentation.  The result is something akin to a chopped and screwed version of Kala-era M.I.A. that's come down with a bad case of typhoid fever.
