This March, Matt and Tim will be hosting CKUT’s artist-in-residence program If You Got ears. Matt and Tim are musical collaborators, working together in Montreal art punk band Ought (signed to noteworthy experimental label Constellation Records). Their adventures apart include Matt’s ambient project Welter & Associates and Tim’s emo/hardcore trio Mands. For now, they expect to host a relatively free-form show, drawing inspiration from experimental music found all over the world, hosting a few guests here and there, and playing plenty of local jams. Tune in each Wednesday from 12-2pm on CKUT 90.3 fm and online at CKUT.ca to open your mind and ears with Matt and Tim.
I saw Drag City jammers Rangda play last night and little pieces of my brain are probably still stuck on the walls of Casa del Popolo — they were that good. Chris Corsano is a hell of a drummer. Everything else in the past week paled in comparison. Has any band made you feel like that recently? If so, I wanna hear about them.
:::WHAT’S UP AT CKUT:::
Longtime CKUT contributors and local celebs Matt May and Tim Keen play in a bunch of projects together and apart, including Welter & Assoc., Mands, and Ought. Neither of them really know what they’re going to do yet on-air, but judging by their music collections you can probably expect some local gems, hopefully some special guests, and some avant jams (justly-intoned and otherwise) from around the world. Expect the unexpected every Wednesday in March from 12-2pm, or download the audio straight from the CKUT archives.

I was in Ottawa over the weekend and made it back to Montreal just in time to catch a really nice double tape release from local stars Alcrete and Welter & Associates. Both are excellent and come highly recommended by these CKUT music department ears. How about you? What are you listening to these days?
:::WHAT’S UP AT CKUT:::
Every Wednesday during the month of February, Ryan Alexander Diduck will be taking over as guest-host and curator of CKUT’s If You Got Ears. Diduck is a Montréal-based writer, producer and doctor of philosophy who’s got four solid weeks of exciting radio up his sleeve, with each show focusing on a different theme. On the February 10th episode, our host dedicates the episode to the music, memory and legacy of David Bowie. One month after the Starman’s passing, Diduck will go beyond the hits to discover some of his more obscure tracks as well as music that influenced him and that he in turn influenced. Plus, don’t miss an exclusive interview with British music writer and co-founder of The Quietus, Luke Turner. Stream this very special David Bowie edition of If You Got Ears on February 10th from 12-2pm EST at ckut.ca.
