In The Shadow Of What Never Was
(Chondritic Sound - CH-325) LP $16.00
The first full-length by Justin Lakes is a meditation on the transformative effects of near-death experiences, aiming to connect observed parallels between chaotic events in the lives of strangers and Lakes’s understanding of stressful environments. The three-part A-Side focuses on May 16, 1986; crude and distant devices build tension until there’s nothing left but an alarming and discomforting reality. Mundane power electronics and crumbling walls of tape come and go. The B-Side’s quadriptych dwells on the effects of prolonged periods of fear. Serene environments are quickly corrupted.
