CJLO’s Top Played “Loud” Artists of 2021

Well, 2021 was quite a year wasn't it? It's a good thing we're in 2022 now, which we all know will be totally different from 2021 and isn't just an arbitrary number we've assigned based on our observations of us rotating around the sun. No, 2022 has already come in and solved all the problems that were left over from the last year.

Mapping Montreal Music

CJLO has recently endeavoured upon a new initiative: the Mapping Montreal Music (MMM) project. MMM will see the production of an 8-episode podcast series, whereby we’ll be mapping our city’s musical history, borough by borough. Tasked with the project are three new members of the CJLO staff: Music Journalist in Residence Sun Noor, Music Journalist Assistant George McFarlane, and Lead Web Developer Alana DeVito.

So the world can learn more about our new staff and what brought them to CJLO, we’ve asked each new member to fill out a short Q&A.

Sun Noor (Music Journalist in Residence):


Best of 2021

CJLO tends to attract community members who are intensely passionate about art, whether they’re creators, consumers, or both. As a result, checking out our yearly “best of” lists is a great way of keeping up with great releases that may have flown under your radar this year. With the station’s wide range of tastes, from crusty hardcore to electro-pop, there’s surely something for everyone to discover. Music-based lists also weren’t the only thing submitted, so make sure to look out for top movies as well!

“This song really slapped / brought me back to life.”

So sings Aaron Maine on “Back3School,” one of the singles from All Day Gentle Hold !, his fifth and latest album under the moniker Porches.
