CKUT TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE CHARTS::: October 3, 2017

Hello radio,

Well, the heatwave has finally broken and fall is here at last; with the change of seasons, I’m always inclined to tune my ears to heavier jams. Summery jangle pop has been replaced by loud, harsh sounds in my personal playlist and so naturally I was extra pumped for the Big|Brave album launch (pictured above) over the weekend. They’ve been one of my fave local bands for a good while but their new record is truly next level… I ran into Omar from CJLO at the show and we were similarly blown away. Definitely recommended for those craving a good eardrum pummelling.

:::WHAT’S UP AT CKUT:::
Join Strangerfamiliar for the month of October as she hosts the Montreal Sessions every Tuesday from 3-5pm. This edition will explore the eclectic range of influences from this Chilean-born, Canadian-raised visual and cry-pop artist. This residency will be delving into everything from hip-swaying, blood-pumping Island sounds that bid farewell to summer to introspective, emotional ambient tracks to welcome fall. The songs and interviews through out the month are an exploration into the healing power of music overall. And it’s a timely feature, too: coming fresh off the incredible Polaris win by Colombia’s own Lido Pimienta, expect to hear a mix of New Latin Wave, witchy electropop vibes, afrobeat, soulful hits, chillwave synth jams and plenty more!
