12 O'Clock Track: The gloomy, unkempt postpunk of Institute's "Bureaucrat"

There's not much to glean from a web-difficult band name like Institute—especially when that band only appears to have a nondescript six-song demo floating around on Bandcamp. I do know, however, that Institute is from Austin and contains at least one member of Wiccans, a rough-and-tumble outfit that doesn't so much play hardcore punk as beat you upside the head with it. Today's 12 O'Cock Track, "Bureaucrat," is a slovenly, postpunk jam from Institute that's sinister both in its creeping, unadorned guitar lead and the apathetic, practically syllable-less lead vocals. It's disenchantment through a different lens. They open up for Destruction Unit at Township on Wed 5/28.
