Our first Montreal Sessions episode, featuring Mavo, was rad! They rocked and talked hard and everyone at CKUT loved how much the second floor above the studio was vibrating from their powerfully loud and lovely sound. Missed it? No worries, we’ve got you covered with the archive of the show, available below. Be sure to tune in next Tuesday between 3–5pm to hear our next band, Reversing Falls.
