Already well known in the Montreal music scene for her work with Les Momies de Palerme, Essaie Pas, DKMD, Land of Kush and more, Marie is now beginning a new musical chapter. She refers to her solo work as Existential Pop: Dark, haunted sounds with some seriously dance inspired inclinations define this new release.
We spoke about the move towards dance music, her past collaborators, new label and more.
And as always: upcoming shows, brand new tunes, and all kinds of good times!
Andy Boay (Andy White from TONSTARTSSBANDHT) joined us in the studio on June 3rd to play “Big Chestined Nights” and “Don’t Desert Me” from his album Evil Masters. Andy conjured a devilish acapella choir from his mysterious boxes, all while roaming the hallway with a wireless mic.
You can download studio versions of the tracks here, and grab the MP3 of the live session from CKUT’s archive here.
Warm weather and a certain upcoming show had us buzzing at the station today. To be more clear, Colin Stetson is playing this Saturday at Sala Rossa and it was 20 degrees today. Not bad.
