Music Alert: Timewitch – Sarah’s New Best Friend Sarah (Psychic Test Tapes)

Check out these weird new remixes from my 2022 album There’s Something Wrong with Sarah.

Timewitch – Sarah’s New Best Friend Sarah (Psychic Test Tapes)

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.

Regera Dowdy’s Ghost: Music for your next Séance

In 2018 I released Regera Dowdy’s Ghost at the Hotel Recherché in 1961, an ethereal dark ambient exploration into vintage horror. And the perfect soundtrack for your next séance.

Now you can play the whole EP in one mixed format video. Happy Halloween 2022! 🎃

Video Alert: EXPOSED! The Truth About Time Cults

Who wants a bucket of VHS cult horror blood?

I just made a bonkers music video for EXPOSED! The Truth About Time Cults, a song from the eponymous Timewitch debut album. Timewitch is my minimal occult synth side project.

Happy Halloween 2022! 🎃

Fake Soundtrack Alert! There’s Something Wrong with Sarah

Who doesn’t love a little throwback exploitation realness?

My soundtrack to the totally fake film There’s Something Wrong with Sarah is a love letter to the godawful low-budget horror film soundtracks of the 70s and 80s.

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.

Music Alert: Age of Distrust Remixes

I just finished two dark ambient / experimental remixes for the FREE album Age of Distrust by ambient masterminds The Creeping Man and Black Pill Machine.

Age of Distrust is upsetting as it is innovative, somehow confrontational without ever really taking any kind of discernible shape. It shifts and tumbles out of the darkness like it wants something from you. Sharp, unexpected textures bubble up from long, low rumbles and melt into pitched-down vocal samples from another era.

I’m really excited to be part of this release! Check out their individual Bandcamp pages for more mind-bending experimental / dark ambient explorations (The Creeping Man / Black Pill Machine).

Haunted Mixtape Roundup!

It’s almost Spooktober! That means you have to listen to haunted music at least once a day. It’s like the law.

Thank goodness I’m here! Check out these free mixtapes for hours of terrifying soundscapes.

And don’t forget to visit my haunted bandcamp page for even more weird tunes, all 100% free to stream and download.

Happy haunting!

Video Alert: Thrill Behind Barks / Neil Auch Collab

Last year my darkwave band The Seven Whores of the Apocalypse recorded an experimental noise album under the name Thrill Behind Barks (Three in a Cell).

This year TBB collaborated with decay photographer Neil Auch for the gorgeously upsetting video Blowfly Girl: A Short Film to one of the songs from Three in a Cell, and the result is electrifying.

Many thanks to Chris and Tom of 7W / TBB, and to Neil for allowing us to collaborate on such a fabulous project!
