New Shit with Chris Corsano and Mette Rasmussen

If you happened to be listening in on Monday’s edition of New Shit, you’ll know that we were lucky enough to have drummer Chris Corsano and alto-saxophonist Mette Rasmussen perform live for us in the studio. With crazy talented improvisations and interesting techniques (including putting seemingly random items in instruments), the result was a myriad of jazzy sounds that were something else entirely.

In the case that you missed out, don’t worry. You can check out the episode here. If you like what you hear, and we think you will, Chris and Mette have released an album worth hearing called All The Ghosts At Once. Jam out to your hearts content, and tune back to CKUT for more exciting performances and guests!


Shenanigans at Popolo for the Montreal Sessions

This week a few of us at CKUT had the pleasure of attending a very special remote broadcast of The Montreal Sessions at Casa Del Popolo. Our hosts, Paula and Pablo, did a fabulous job on the behalf of Suoni Per Il Popolo (which is an ongoing festival definitely worth hitting up this summer). There were some amazing guests such as Gambletron, Myriam Gendron, Dead Moon, LWA, and Blankets!


Our hosts also got the chance to interview Peter Burton, one of the big names behind the Suoni Per Il Popolo festival.


Check out the archive of the session here, and stay tuned for more events from CKUT!
