Brooklyn duo Courtship Ritual have released a video for "Ancient Drip" which was featured on last year's underrated PITH LP. (It just barely missed my Best of 2014 list.) Directed by Anthony Sylvester, it puts a dark, kaleidoscopic face to the song and you can watch that below. That song is also featured on a new GODMODE compilation cassette titled American Music that also features a unreleased Courtship Ritual track ("Gris Gris"), as well as songs from YVETTE, Motion Studies, Shamir and more. The cassette's out March 31. Tracklist is below.

Courtship Ritual have a few NYC shows coming up: March 28 at Shea Stadium with Phedre, Doomsquad and VOTIIV; then April 3 at Palisades with UK band Vision Fortune; and May 5 at Union Pool with Weeknight and Aircrafting.
