We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

Music Update Oct. 9: Hel Audio's Videozine


If you don’t know what a videozine is, let Hel Audio show you. No strangers to pushing the limits, the members of the innovative and experimental electronica label are now pushing into the realm of zines, but doing it quite their own way. Today they dropped their first videozine, which is a longform video compilation featuring songs and videos from a number of Hel artists. With an opening sequence that has all the energy of behind the scenes tour footage with its shots of Utah mountains from the freeway and show’s past, the 24-minute long video that follows is soundtracked by songs from Hel folks like Mooninite, UTA Trax, Tealizard, Angel Magic, OK Ikumi, Andrew Aguilera and Θ. Each artist’s featured song is accompanied by footage featuring a video to go with it, and they vary widely. The UTA Trax song “Logic A/B (Raw Jam)” soundtracks the sight of a complex synth set up, with rows of glowing buttons and tangles of cables and cords. Tealizard’s “Heal Evil” overlays shifting and striking nature scenes, while Angel Magic’s “Reappear” is a modest home recording of the duo, Andrew Aguilera and Lauren Smith, performing the song. There are more, but who am I to spoil it? Dig into these immersive videos and their songs if you want something relaxing to watch this Friday eve. Find the video on YouTube under the helaudio account, and follow @helaudio on Instagram for news on future projects.
