Montréal artist Matt May oscillates between the poles of noise and understated folk under his solo moniker Countrywide. After quietly gathering material for the past four years, Countrywide released a long-awaited double album on July 23 and we’re very excited to welcome him into the studio during the Monday Morning After to talk about his work and play some songs from the record(s). It has been claimed within the walls of this very music office that Countrywide writes some of “the most crushing folk music in Montréal,” and this is a rare chance to hear him live on the radio working his magic. Catch it at 7:30am on Monday, streaming live at www.ckut.ca or on the dial at 90.3 FM.
