Prince Rama's Trust Now is a postcard from an alternate universe, a place where Kate Bush never became a star but ended up performing Jesus Christ Superstar as a one-woman show, backed by a burning psychedelic synth band. This Brooklyn group's fifth record, and first as a female duo, is the real sound of witch house, which is to say they sound like serious witches -- impossibly high, fluttery voices singing mystic incantations over pulsing, six-minute jams that gun for another astral plane, and occasionally reach it.
