Grab the mesmerizing beast by the horns and be propelled into experimental avant-rock spindrift of Anthems of the Void and their live incantation of “Monster” from the Banff Centre for the Arts and Creativity. Caylie Staples’ effected vocals are operatic starbursts next to the comets sailing forth from Geoff Gersh’s guitar, and Bradford Reed is the universal force that connects them all with his drums, electronics and his very own grand creation, the pencilina, an electric board zither!

Infinite Monotremes is a new Toronto-based improvisational experimental collective founded and helmed by drummer Curtis Whittaker, for the purpose of community building involving artists throughout the creative disciplines in live and recorded settings. Here is their seventh music video, an chilling soundtrack escapade over photo-negative collages of scenes from mid-twentieth century film noirs, edited by Evan Harkai.
Upcoming Performance Dates:
Aug 3: Toronto, ON @ The Array Space – Audiopollination 74 ft the infinite monotremes
Sporadic fascination! Here is the first music video from the new self-culminating music project by Peter Gorski. Juxtaposed with avant-garde disjunct rhythmic curvatures, atmospheric jazz harmony and instrumentation, symphonic electronic patterns of colouration and ambient mood shading, this instrumental work is accompanied by metamorphic fractal animation by Peter’s visual counterpart, Fractal Sound, an amorphous mushroom-sphere, a living organism and universe unto itself.
“A Brief InnerMission” will appear on the upcoming debut album by Bāsal, called Recursiv, to be released in Winter 2019.

Grunge/punks Metz get downright sludgy on “Ripped on the Fence”. Never fear, their signature strident urgency shines through.
Toronto’s Feather Weight (Alistair Bundale, Neil Culbert, Jordan Quinn, Raymond Cara) release a cool vid for their track “Something Else”. The track mines the sounds of the ’60s but it’s delivered up in a package that’s unique, as it goes from sweet melodic pop to frenzied edgy rock and many places in between.
Seen through a soft haze or reflective car window, the normal world takes on an almost surreal air in the video to Eliza Niemi’s “Different”. From Niemi’s solo album ‘Vinegar’ (she is a member of Mauno) the song flows like a hesitant and experimental stream-of-thought. But the song has sweet beauty and harmony, coming together as a satisfying work.
