STACK SESSIONS: Bear Ceuse

Thursday, July 15th, 2010

Last Friday we were joined in the studio by Bear Ceuse, aka Cameron Matthews. He played a few songs for us, and we discussed awesome St. Louis bands and his plans for moving to NYC. My two favorite songs (“O-K-L-A-EE-OHMA” and “I Saw It Beating”) are posted below for your viewing pleasure. Cameron has also decided that he’d like to host a show on KWUR this summer, so keep your ears open for his voice coming to you over the airwaves in the next weeks.

Please also explore KWUR’s new youtube channel. If you have any video’s from KWUR’s illustrious past, please shoot me an email at local@kwur.com and we’ll get those videos posted.

STACK SESSIONS – FEMALE DEMAND

Saturday, July 10th, 2010

Female Demand is a two piece out of Houston, and they play loud loud loud rock and roll music. Like, when we were recording their session, shit-was-falling-out-of-the-ceiling-loud. How do two people make so much noise? While you contemplate that mystery, go ahead and download three tracks below. If the link doesn’t work or the file won’t open, leave a comment and I’ll fix it.

Oh yeah, I guess we’re back. More to come, soon.
