RAMZI hosts If You Got Ears

ramzi

RAMZI is Phoebé Guillemot, a self-taught producer from Montreal. In 2013, She released the EP Etwal Timoun on vinyl through the label Total Stasis as well as a tape titled DEZOMBI on Los Discos Enfantasmes. Bébites is her first self-released album under Pygmy Animals, Phoebé’s newly founded label. The July 9th episode of IYGE features an interview and live performance from Antoine93, as well as a live mix by DJ Spencer.

If You Got Ears is a weekly, two-hour voyage through various types of sonic experimentation: ranging from noise to electroacoustics, the program digs deep into the goldmine of musique actuelle and all its sprawling tangents. Sometimes loud and aggressive, sometimes minimal and minutely detailed, but always bridging the gap between the challenging and the familiar. Hear it every Wednesday from 12-14h EST, or listen to past episodes on the CKUT archives.

Post Pop New Shit!

This week was our annual Post-Pop hangover broadcast, featuring highlights from the festival including Big Brave, Pop. 1280, and Dam Ships.

Also in the last week, the annual Polaris Music Prize was awarded to longtime station fav’s Godspeed You! Black Emperor. New Shit regular (and current blogger!) Dorian was in Toronto for the gala, and had a word or two to say about the event, the jury and of course, the winner.

You can read Godspeed’s internet-debate-igniting statement on the Constellation Records website.

We were also lucky enough to be joined live in studio by local noisemaker RAMZI! We got to chat about small scale independant touring, performing four times during Pop Montreal, being selected to play as part of “Best of the Fest” on Sunday at Casa del Popolo, and her upcoming release on Los Discos Enfantasmes.

It all made for some enjoyable, if mildly hungover, radio making.
