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.
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).
