Smileswithteeth is the dream pop project of Los Angeles born-and-bred, Montreal-based musician Gabriel Gutierrez. Blending propulsive drums and ethereal textures, he makes genuinely happy music that doesn’t pander or pretend.

For the month of May, he’ll be hosting the Montreal Sessions alongside vocalist Lillian King over at CKUT, bringing you live performances, exclusive premieres from his forthcoming remix EP, and wholesome good times. Tuesdays 3 - 5pm

Jeremy Young Hosts If You Got Ears May 2016

The purpose of this residency is to reimagine my role as a radio jockey as an active creative participant in the flow of music throughout the set. I will be “performing” my material alongside other artists’ music, integrating my own arsenal of reel-to-reel tape loops live to both intervene with as well as smoothly usher along the narrative of the set. We’re going to explore the dreamstate together, lots of repetition and lots of loops, and each set will wonderfully dictate its own sense of time and time space. What fun! Organ Speed Loop

In commemoration of the death Robert Nesta Bob Marley ( 1956 - May 11 1981) join Danielle & TLC, from the old CKUT show Skinbusy as they reunite on Monday May 9th, 12-2pm for a special celebration of the life and legacy of Bob Marley.
