CKUT TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE CHARTS::: August 29, 2017

Hi friends,

Princess Nokia rolled through Montreal last night and it was a doozy of a show — sold out room, crazy energy, and an all-around great performance. Forgive me, I’m still cobbling my brain and senses back together over here.

Other than that, we’re about to dive into frosh week and campus is abuzz with new students. Anyone else feeling especially old this time of year? Please reassure me that I’m not the only one.

CKUT TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE CHARTS::: August 22, 2017

Hi folks,

Keeping this short today — I’m catching up from a whirlwind weekend trip to Toronto, a real nice gig with total sweethearts Yamantaka//Sonic Titan, and the usual back-to-school prep madness. MUTEK also kicks off today so it ain’t getting any quieter around here, either. Wanna stay in the loop about all this goodness and more? You know what to do.

CKUT TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE CHARTS::: August 8, 2017

Hello everyone,

I went sailing for the first time over the weekend and learned some important things, like why you shouldn’t always take the bait when your friends dare you to jump in a very cold river first thing in the morning. Life lessons aside, it was a really excellent trip and it felt great to get out of the city for a bit. It’s tough to come back to reality after that kind of voyage!

:::WHAT’S UP AT CKUT:::
Tune in to Gotsoul Sessions on Saturday, August 12th from 2-4pm to hear Miss Benn & the rest of the crew live from Under Pressure.

CKUT TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE CHARTS::: August 1, 2017

Hi folks,

I’m back in the office after a nice trip out west to visit family — spent a lot of time kayaking, biking, and hanging at the beach. Managed to avoid the forest fires, thankfully, and only had a couple smoky days during my stay… feeling very lucky about that. Now I’m back in the office, struggling through jetlag and some weird internet sketchiness thanks to system upgrades at McGill. These updates are impacting our internet connections and also our phone lines, so if you try to reach me and don’t get through please try again later this week.

Charts below reflect the past couple weeks of programming here, and there’s only a top 30 because it’s hard to compile genre charts when all your databases are down due to the aforementioned internet issues. :(
Apologies! Things should be back to normal next week.

Hope you’re all having a great summer!

:::WHAT’S UP AT CKUT:::
Sylvain Bouthilette, renowned visual artist and bass player for the legendary hardcore band Bliss, hosts If You Got Ears every Wednesday in August from noon till 2pm. As a break from our usual sound-art extravaganza during the Ears timeslot, we’re taking a left turn and venturing into the world of dub: drawing surprising lines between dub and minimalist composition, this residency will stretch your eardrums and minds into new & unexpected territory. Dub is spiritual, dub is cosmic, dub is political, dub is introspection, dub is action, dub is on the barricades and is a voice of resistance. From the Jamaican mothership, the British Stepper style and the international scene, Sylvain will be exploring all of its aspects and wants to bring you along for the ride. Dig it Wednesdays at noon, only on ckut.ca.

CKUT TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE CHARTS::: July 18, 2017

Hi friends,

I was lucky enough to catch fantastic Montreal expats Steve Jr (above) last week — they don’t make it up here very often and they totally killed it, as per usual. The night afterwards I also got to see Vancouver punks Cloaca rip it up with locals Rivalled Envy and Total Bliss… trying to get my fix of live music before I head out west to hang in the country with family for a bit. And that bring us to, yep, you guess it, VACATION ALERT: I will not be in the office from July 20th – 31st inclusive. Email if you like, but I will have limited internet access out on Anarchist Mountain. Charts and tracking will resume when I’m back in town. Thanks in advance for your cooperation in helping me and my inbox get a bit of chill time this summer.

Peace

CKUT TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE CHARTS::: July 11, 2017

Hi folks,

I’ve been lying low over the past week fighting a gnarly cold (do they feel extra wicked in the summer, or is it just me…?)
However, I did make it out for a rad show last week celebrating a friend’s birthday, featuring ßtaß (above) and many others — it was a pretty all-star local crew fitting of the special occasion. Definitely worth leaving the house for!

Hello friends,

Montreal was lucky enough to get a repeat appearance from Les Filles de Illighadad last week, joined by a special guest drummer from Mdou Moctar’s band. Gig of the year? It definitely set the bar pretty high…

Hi folks,

Had a busy weekend of friend hangs, a wedding reception, and a truly excellent afternoon noise show on Sunday featuring a great set by CKUT’s own Tamara Filyavich (above). I’m also gearing up for Les Filles de Illighadad to make a second appearance in Montreal tomorrow night — their show last week was really special, so it’s exciting to have the opportunity to see them again. If you’re in town, don’t miss it!
