Reversing Falls were a helluva lot of fun on yesterday’s edition of The Montreal Sessions! If you missed the show, don’t fret, you can it via the archives (their live set starts at 48min. 47sec, interview is later in the second hour). The live set is also embedded below. These gents have well-crafted tunes replete with “sick tones, sweet riffs and fresh beats” and their banter is pretty witty tune.

You should listen to the whole two hours when you have a chance, we played tunes by Ancient Kids, Cotton Mouth, new tUnE-yArDs, Patti Smith, Marnie Stern and a whole lot more, plus we kicked off the show with some Sleater-Kinney and a short spoken piece dedicated to International Women’s Day, which was yesterday, the 8th of March.

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

Tune in next week to catch Martin Horn of Cotton Mouth!

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.
