📹 Affect Display – ‘Until The Light Hits The Door’

Affect Display is the moniker of Toronto electronic music producer Damien Smith. Just today, we came across his new video for Until The Light Hits The Door and let’s just say this thing has been on repeat ever since. It’s a real atmospheric number that will take you on a musical journey you won’t soon forget. The track is included on his debut album Animal Drift Animal.

Smith describes the song: “Like a phoenix rising from the ashes life is born into the world. Light hits one of the infinite doors from which before had come darkness and life emerges. It’s all at once uncomfortable, painful, wondrous, new and beautiful.

📹 LAL – ‘Turn Water Into Blood’

LAL is the moniker of Toronto’s Rosina Kazi and Nicholas Murray. Just recently, the experimental-electronic duo shared the second single off their upcoming long-player, Meteors Could Come Down. We can’t seem to get enough of this one here at The IM, so now it’s time to share it with you.

“For years, we have been creating and supporting our community of dark magical beings and in turn we also have been supported spiritually and emotionally,” says Kazi. “We are auspicious: those of us who are dismissed and/or feared. The way we try to survive and have survived is through our chosen family. ‘Turn Water into Blood’ is the most rhythmic song on this album and it celebrates the world we have created together.”
