Steve Jr. Live on New Shit

Steve Jr. make a hell of a lot of noise for a duo. Ever since getting their latest self-released tape here at the ol' CKUT, folks have been going crazy over their heavy psych jams. Together, Corbin and Gleb meld crushing yet infinitely catchy riffs with pounding drums and wailed vocals and the result is a truly impressive wall of sound. We were thrilled to have them join us for an in-studio performance during New Shit, even though their volume shook the room enough to make CDs fall off shelves. We forgive 'em.

Soft on the Ears: Le fruit vert Live @ Casa

 

Local duo Le fruit vert have become masters at building intricate sonic worlds. Layers of vocals, effects, and an array of acoustic and electronic instruments weave together, a web of finely-tuned sonic detail stretched out to envelope listeners in sound. We caught them live at Casa del Popolo on June 17th as part of the Suoni Per Il Popolo festival, broadcasting their set over the airwaves for all to hear. Here's the audio for those who missed it -- and those who want to re-live the magic all over again.

¡FLIST! on The Montreal Sessions

In January, local booking collective Loose-Fit hosted, and invited ¡FLIST! in for their final show.

Music that is as much Nick Cave as it is Thomas Dolby, what really sets ¡FLIST! apart is the incredibly emphatic live performance, the essence of which being hinted at in Twitch's new video for bug.

Les Momies de Palerme

After a couple years weaving their magical and haunting sounds through Montreal's underground, Les Momies de Palerme went on hiatus. Needless to say, we were thrilled when the duo agreed to reunite and join us in the CKUT studios and play some music during If You Got Ears. Surrounded by an array of synths, effects, cables, and mixers, the pair conjured some seriously dreamy audio during their live performance. The stunning audio and the fleeting reunion made a truely special set.

Nick Kuepfer Live on the Montreal Sessions

In the decade that he has called Montreal home, Nick Kuepfer has ventured through a wide range of sonic territory: from playing with infamous noise rockers AIDS Wolf to layering minimal guitar compositions with ambient drones, his contributions to the city's musical community are stunning in both their quality and diversity of sound. Keeping with his tradition of collaging unlikely sonic textures, Nick's live performance during the Constellation Records-curated Montreal Sessions found him alternately plucking and bowing an acoustic guitar over unearthly tape loops. At once rich and subtle, this piece will reward those who listen closely.

Jerusalem In My Heart

Just days before the release of their long-awaited debut album, two members of the global drifter trio Jerusalem In My Heart met in the CKUT studios for a rare live performance and interview sent out onto the airwaves. Radwan Ghazi Moumneh is known around these parts for his work at the famed Hotel2Tango as well as for his long history as a performer in the Montreal and Beirut musical communities, and Jérémie Regnier is a composer and producer who'd flown in from his home in France less than 24 hours before this CKUT session. The sheer geographical distance between the members of JIMH mean that any live performances are a rarity, and we were thrilled when the folks at Constellation Records were able to get them in as part of their Montreal Sessions residency.

Combining traditional and contemporary Arabic sounds with electronics, drones, and some improvised live tape echo, Radwan and Jérémie brought forth some truly captivating sounds during their performance. Dual vocals, buzuk, synths, and an array of gadgets ebbed and flowed in the reinterpretations of two tracks from their forthcoming record Mo7it Al-Mo7it.
