Tis the season, and you know what that means. It’s time for some disgustingly fabulous face-melting content on The Montreal Sessions, and who better to bring that than Jilted X. Get ready for the Xtreme take over this month, featuring yr hosts/group members Esther Splett and Tiffany Paige. Jilted X are a femmecore performance art duo based right here in MTL, who “use a haunted harp, crackling synth vibrations, punishing drums beats, magical midi wands, textural samples and their own grotesque physicality as arsenal in performing a collection of lovesick songs about murder, misandry, being dumb as resistance, perpetual pubescence as resistance and resistance as resistance.” This month will feature some wicked tunes and manic laughter with guests such as Perverted Justice, Roadcake, WIVES, No Bro, Starchild Stela, Ghost Taco, Malokio, Douce Angoisse, and an interview with Courtney Love (!!!).
Check out their facebook page for some informative slash hilarious descriptions of how they formed/what they’re all about, and tune in today and every Tuesday from 3-5pm for the month of December to join the party~~~~
Trumpet extraordinaire Craig Pedersen was in our studios for the last time this week for his November instalment of The Montreal Sessions, which airs every Tuesday from 3-5pm. This month was all about playing recordings from artists who inspired Craig, and inviting special guests for live jams and discussions on interesting musical topics. This week featured recordings from Ryuichi Sakamoto, Joelle Leandre, Bill Dixon, Otomo Yoshihide, Pauline Oliveros and more. On top of that, saxophonist Philippe Lauzier and flautist Cléo Palacio-Quintin featured as guests on the show for some great performances that are well worth a listen.
If you missed any of the episodes this month, fear not! You can find them all on our archives. As for December, tune in this coming Tuesday as Jilted X take over the show with some fantastic experimental/mallgoth sounds~~
After a wicked kick off with last weeks Montreal Sessions, Saturn Returns is back with another episode today from 3-5pm with many treats in store. Saturn Returns is a feminist collective that is guided by anti-oppressive and anti-capitalist frameworks, and aim to promote welcoming spaces for accessible music creation, distribution, and performance. On today’s show, your hosts Shaun and Erika will be talking about collectives, collective feminist spaces, and their jam space collective: studio BOOBZ. They’ve also got a live performance from Jilted-X lined up!
If this sounds awesome to you, you’re not wrong. Tune in and don’t miss this week’s episode of The Montreal Sessions~~
