You probably already know Xarah Dion from her notable and numerous past/present projects around the city (Leopold et Moi, Les Momies des Palerme, Noueveau Zodiaque), but it’s time to catch her latest endeavour: hosting If You Got Ears on CKUT every Wednesday, 12-14h.
To kick off the radio residency, Xarah will be highlighting a show at La Vitrola this Friday with Martial Canterel, Automelodi and Litige (who is also performing live on today’s show!!!).
With a new month comes a fresh-faced radio residency: Towanda is ready to take over The Montreal Sessions every Tuesday 3-5pm. The local trio is as fierce as they are fiery, so we’re looking forward to them heating up the airwaves all February! You can listen to their new Black Sheep EP here, recorded at Drones Club and released with Killer Haze Records
For their first episode, the ladies will be taking us back-stage for a behind-the-scenes look at who Towanda is, what they’re up to and where they’re going next.
In the coming sessions, look out for live performances and interviews, plus an in-depth look into both DIY culture and punk-rock feminism around Montreal.
Whoa, it’s cold out there. Stay warm wherever you are!
:::WHAT’S UP AT CKUT::::
As some of you may know, the CKUT music department runs a sweet lil’ blog called Total Eclipse. It’s the go-to place to find out about special programming, upcoming interviews and in-studios, as well as plenty of awesome content from our amazing volunteers. In particular, our crew has been churning out top-notch reviews as of late, so if you’re looking for something tasty to feast your eyes on I recommend starting with these Grouper and Ariel Pink reviews and dig in from there.
