"5low" sounds like what it must be like to wander around a sprawling mansion in the dark, guided only by the muffled voice of your would-be murderer three rooms away. If someone made a movie about a benevolent occult group trying to conquer the world through the use of remote viewing and hypnotic suggestion, these six Modern Witch songs would be the perfect accompaniment. The remix of "Living Room," with its sounds of clattering metal plates and broken glass, has Kristy Fenton and Mario Zoots sharing an eerie duet that could have inspired David Lynch to make Eraserhead. This EP seems to be equally informed by the dark imaginations of Rod Serling and Edgar Allan Poe. If Douglas P of Death in June decided to make experimental electronic music again, he'd make something like this.
