So we’re playing this y’all! Next Thursday in Tronna. Have a listen to tunes by the wonderful Cigarettes and come early- 7pm!!

 

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!

The fourth show of the March edition of the Montreal Sessions is today and the band we’re hosting is Sick Friend! Tune into CKUT 90.3FM in Montreal between 3-5pm to listen to the twosome play live, chat and help DJ tunes. If yer not in Montreal, listen along on-line by visiting ckut.ca.

Radio Sunday

This past weekend we spent time recording a few new tunes live off of the floor with the production team at CKUT. Be sure to tune into the last edition of the MTL Sessions on the 29th to have a listen to them!

Thanks to Marc, Sarah and Kara at CKUT for their tech wizardry!

Here are a bunch of photos from the session.

Pour

Work by Holton Rower

Three ways to pour.

1. Pour yourself a glass of something strong for St. Patrick’s Day; if the day means nothing to you, celebrate it as the day Montrealers try to coax springtime into the city.

2. Pour some cash into the coffers of Japanese communities who need it. Fixture Records have something excellent going on. From their website:

For the next month, we will be donating 100% of download sales on our website to the Miyagi Prefecture in Japan to help with their relief efforts.

DOWNLOAD ALBUMS AVAILABLE:

Dirty Beaches – Bird EP »  Listen / Download
Dirty Beaches – Seaside EP »  Listen / Download
Postcards – self-titled cassette »  Listen / Download

  • All downloads cost $5 CAN
  • We can process payments using paypal or credit card
  • After checkout, you will be automatically re-directed to a page to download a zip file containing the mp3s and album art

Our friends at Big Love Records in Harajuku, Tokyo will forward your donations to the Miyagi government to allocate as necessary. They believe that sending donations directly to the local regional council will have the fastest and most efficient result.

If you already have these titles and would still like to contribute, you can make a simple donation through Big Love and/or order records and merch marked “charity” in theironline shop.

More about Holton Rower’s Pour series right here.

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!
