Our last radio show for the CKUT Montreal Sessions is today and we’re the featured band! We’ve been absolutely loving our residency at the radio station and today we’ll be premiering new, unreleased songs of ours recorded at Digital Bird Studios as well as a pre-taped live set of even newer tunes recorded at CKUT last weekend.  Then we’ll have a heart to heart about ’em on air.  Listen on-line (ckut.ca) or tune your radio to 90.3FM here in Montreal between 3-5pm.  If you can’t tune in at that time be sure to visit our website afterward for links to the archive of the show!

Sick Friend are unintentionally elusive, having worked intensely on an album’s worth of tunes over the past year only to throw them out in order to re-record them next month! But here they are, as part of the March Montreal Sessions. They played an excellent live set, which you can listen to below, and then stuck around to answer some of our questions.

In the first hour of the show we DJed an almost all-Canadian set including tunes from Brave Radar, Parlovr, The Besnard Lakes, Coulees, Starvin’ Hungry, Braids, Shapes & Sizes, Lhasa, Maximilien Bouchard and lots more! Have a listen to the whole show in the CKUT archives (March 22nd 2011).

Next week’s show is our last as hosts of the March edition of the CKUT Montreal Sessions and we’ll be the band featured. Do tune in on the 29th between 3-5pm to have a listen! We’ll be playing lots of our new tunes and the like- we’re so excited!

Martin Horn (Cotton Mouth) and Mikey Bwickers (Mixylodian/Asthma Camp) were righteous on today’s edition of The Montreal Sessions! The two collaborated on three cover tunes, executed with the help of a saxophone, some backing tracks, a pretty blue guitar and Martin’s pipes. Have a listen to their live set:

We interspersed the live tunes with some great conversation about making music in montreal, Martin’s recording studio Digital Bird Studios, touring, the lunar perigee and loads more, as well as listened to songs by Gobble Gobble, Purity Ring, Mixylodian, Sick Friend, Cotton Mouth and more. Have a listen right here (March 15th) for the whole show.

Thanks again to Mark and Joe of CKUT for teching the live set!

Tune in next week to catch Sick Friend!
