We return to a pivotal moment at the Witch Mountain Children’s Institute when Sarah meets her new best friend Sarah, also under the “care” of doctors with shall we say questionable motives.
A new scene is revealed: both Sarahs undergo extensive testing to probe their suspected psychic abilities, shortly before they combine their powers to attack their captors and finally break free from the institute. These test session tapes survived.
This album has it all: dripping synths, ridiculous Tubular Bells ripoff piano themes, dadaist nonsense noise collages, and more.
Cut to a grainy 35-mm trailer with a low-voiced guy saying:
Sarah’s a normal, healthy 9 year-old girl — until recently. Her parents have started to think there might be something a bit off about their sweet little angel.
Where she used to joyously jump rope, now she just stares. Where she used to roller skate, now other kids avoid her strange aura. Where she used to solve puzzles, now she ponders the impenetrable mysteries of the human mind.
Hypnosis, telepathy, telekinesis; no one knows what she’s capable of next. One thing is for certain: there’s something wrong with Sarah.
Who doesn’t love a little creepy, throwback ambient techno?
Last year I began recording songs as Timewitch, a project that focuses on leftfield / experimental techno drenched in early 90s synth nostalgia. Now the debut Timewitch album is finally available!
Here’s the promo copy:
The eponymous debut of Minneapolis-based left-field electronica artist Timewitch is a love letter to the freakier frontiers of early 90s synth music. Borrowing from the freshman releases of IDM legends Aphex Twin, mu-Ziq, and Autechre, Timewitch’s eponymous album pays homage to the absolutely bonkers soundtracks of early 90s occult exploitation videos that continue to haunt and delight to this day.
