Friday, May 26 at 8pm MT, join us at CKUA’s Calgary Foundation Studio as we debut new music from one of Canada’s best emerging electronic acts. Calgary outfit AM Static will offer up a radio debut of their forthcoming sophomore album, Rise & Shine. The hour will include a track-by-track preview of the record, with select songs performed live-to-air. CKUA’s Lisa Wilton will host the hour, which will include an interactive Q&A, with questions from the audience. Free tickets to the Rise & Shine listening party are available via Eventbrite.

The duo’s first full-length record A Life Well Lived earned them a coveted JUNO nomination for Electronic Album of the Year in 2016, and landed at #12 on CKUA’s list of our most-played albums of 2015. For a taste of what AM Static has to offer, you can check out our video of their Heritage Posters and Music session featuring Chris Austman’s soulful voice, and the sweet synth sounds of Nils Mikkelsen.
