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!


For the month of July, local music-makers and pigeon enthusiasts Parker Finley, Sydney Lee, Rachel Nam, and Jess ManniquinHead (of MagicPerm and Lonely Boa) are hosting the Montreal Sessions. Tune in for a playlist chock full of local bands, ranging from chillwave to new wave to no wave and more. The series will also featuring live performances by Respectful Child, Lonely Boa, and plenty of others that you’ll need to tune in to catch… You know what to do: listen live each Tuesdayfrom 3-5pm, only on CKUT 90.3 FM and ckut.ca

Montreal Sessions Hand Over to Don’t Fall Collective


Huge thank you to MagicPerm for a month’s worth of alt/synth pop/dream sounds, some awesome live performances, and many a monologue about the prophecy of a pigeon. (Did u know Mike Tyson is an enthusiastic pigeon keeper??).

The Montreal Sessions, our monthly artist-in-residency program, are back this February with Montreal based Don’t Fall Collective!!! The show will delve into compilation culture, zooming out on musical communities to highlight greater movements outside the scope of the individual artist. It will also be an open call for contributions to Don’t Fall Volume 3. Don’t forget to tune in Tuesdays from 3-5pm to check it all out!


MagicPerm Does the Montreal Sessions: January 12th 2016


MagicPerm have been doing a helluva good job on their residency, and if you tuned in this Tuesday you’ll know that this week was no exception. For the uninformed, MagicPerm are a MTL based trio composed of Adam Finley,Sydney Lee, and Rachel Nam who deliver a range of alt/synth pop/dream sounds for all to enjoy. And lucky for us, they’ve agreed to host the Montreal Sessions for the month of January!

This weeks episode comprised of a hilariously deadpan monologue about a pigeons prophecy, some interactive listener games, a wide selection of delightful Canadian music, and the talented Alexia Avina featured in the studio for a live acoustic performance (you can check out her Bandcamp here, it is lovely). What i’m trying to say is that it was a fantastic time and you should defs check out our archives to take a listen to what these guys have been airing!

Don’t forget to tune in next Tuesday from 3-5pm to hear more magic(perm)~~

Pop Montreal, who are in charge of programming The Montreal Sessions this month,  featured performances by Year Of Glad and NOKO and an interview with MagicPerm on their episode yesterday. If you missed it, you can catch the madness on our archives.

The idea behind The Montreal Sessions is to give the community access to the air waves, and every month a different entity provides programming on Tuesdays from 3-5pm. Stay tuned for next weeks session, brought to you again by Pop Montreal!
