Mother Tongue Live on the Montreal Sessions


This month’s Montreal Sessions, hosted by Alex Pelchat, will kick off today with a live session featuring rock duo Mother Tongue. Hailing from Rhode Island, Mother Tongue will be gracing our studio with sludgy tunes equipped with abrasive vocals, steady guitar, and chaotic drum beats. Alex will be holding a Q & A with the duo, so be sure to tune in for some rad music and convos!

Mother Tongue will be playing tonight at La Plante, kicking off their tour with Montreal trio Lungbutter.  They will be touring the east coast for the month of August, so be sure to check out their facebook page to see when they’ll be in your area! Tune into CKUT 90.3 FM’s Montreal Session today from 3-5pm for some great live jams, or catch it on the archives if you miss it live.




Hello radio,
What a weekend – longtime CKUT bffs Steve Jr. rolled into town all the way from New York to play a very special BBQ we organized on Saturday alongside locals Terrified Michael F. (pictured above) and J. Deady. There was amazing food, great sounds, and the cops didn’t fine us over noise in the end. Everybody wins!

An important note for the next few weeks – I will be on vacation for most of August and only checking emails sporadically, so please reach out to our wonderful librarianBejal for any music department stuff or contact admin@ckut.ca for general station inquires. There won’t be any charts or tracking while I’m gone, but our trusty team of music volunteers will be holding it down and making sure new music gets into circulation.

Hope you all enjoy this last month of summer and looking forward to catching up in September.

In a last-minute schedule switcheroo, local man about town Alex Pelchat (*Shining Wizard*Gens Chrétiensdrøm før du dør) is hopping into the studio to host the August edition of the Montreal Sessions. In classic Pelchat style, he whipped together a killer series of live performances to treat yr ears every Tuesday from 3-5pm. Tune in today to catch Providence, RI heavyweights Mother Tongue rip it up live in the studio, and get a taste of what else is in store this month on the CKUT website. Miss it live? Not to worry – grab the archived audio right here and save that baby forever.
