CKUT TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE CHARTS::: April 26, 2016

unnamed

Hi folks,
Everyone really dug the photo of the cute raccoon (whom CKUT staff have dubbed Paul Anka) in last week’s charts — but lest we forget what havoc these little trash pandas can wreak, here is evidence of another raccoon busting into the music office several years back. It was before my time at CKUT but my predecessor AJ Cornell attested that he made a heck of a mess. We learned the hard way the importance of closing the station windows at night!

:::WHAT’S UP AT CKUT:::
We’re super thrilled to welcome longtime CKUT collaborators/buddies Smileswithteeth into the studio to host our May edition of the Montreal Sessions. Smileswithteeth is the dream pop project of Los Angeles born-and-bred, Montreal-based musician Gabriel Gutierrez. Blending propulsive drums and ethereal textures, he makes genuinely happy music that doesn’t pander or pretend. For the month of May he’ll be hosting the Montreal Sessions alongside vocalist Lillian King every Tuesday from 3-5pm, bringing you live performances, exclusive premieres from his forthcoming remix EP, and wholesome good times. Stream it live or download the archives via ckut.ca.
