Montréal's Beat Market are well-known in Canada for their multimedia art that spans electronic music, storytelling and dystopian sci-fi videos.

Today we are premiering the video for “Aviator 2000”, a track from Beat Market‘s 2012 album Red Magic, for which they are currently retooling a new version to more accurately represent their live performance style. As the group says, the story line of “Aviator 2000” is about being “lost in space for a while. We ended up on this new planet, unfriendly but beautiful. Then there was this unreal megapolis and these extraterrestrial lights flying everywhere around us.” Trippy.

PopMatters premieres the video for "I, Satan", taken from Sabbath Assembly's portentous third album Quaternity, set for release on the 28th of March.

“The quaternity is the sine qua non of divine birth and consequently of the inner life of the trinity.
—Carl Jung, CW 11, para 125


“Quaternity”, a term coined by the theological teachings of the Process Church of Final Judgment, founded in the 1960s, relates to the existence of four deities: Christ, Jehovah, Lucifer, and Satan. According to their beliefs, the four dimensions possess their own powers of light, strength, destruction, and death—all of which individually challenge each other yet exist together within the pith of mankind. This ideology makes for an interesting and natural thematic base for Sabbath Assembly’s third full-length album, considering the unity of light and dark, good and evil, Christ and Lucifer has been extolled by the band since their psych-flecked folk debut, 2010’s Restored to One.
