Hey friends,

I am still recovering from playing an amazing, raucous tape release last night w/ my two dear compadres in Lungbutter, alongside Steve Jr. and Blankets — truly some of Montreal’s finest. Feeling a little sleepy still, but so it goes…

Today was all meetings at CKUT: we’re talking big-picture plans and plenty of awesome schemes courtesy of our board and steering committees — hence the lack of speciality charts and the belated nature of this message… apologies! Back to business next week.

Airick Woodhead, the brains behind Arbutus‘ glitchy pop outfit Doldrums, resumes his radio-residency this Wednesday noon to 2pm hosting If You Got Ears.

While the band takes time off touring to finish recording he will be digging into his collection of psychedelic and electronic music to play on air, focusing mostly on Canadian underground artists.

Don’t hit the snooze, you can catch Doldrums opening for TOPS at their upcoming album launch. It’s going down at La Vitrola on August 29 with guests She-Devils.
