Sessions

Lots of awesome bands have recorded live sessions at CJLO over the years! Check out our latest featured sessions here or view the complete list.


Anamai Live @ CJLO

Anamai dropped by The Oven Studio @ CJLO 1690AM to play an intimate set with some of her Toronto pals who were also in town for Pop Montreal Festival. Performing with Anamai was David (AKA Egyptrixx), and Allie of DOOMSQUAD. Despite two thirds of the band being under the weather and having already played and/or anticipating playing over 4 different gigs and parties, all within a day or two, they pulled off a beautiful set with ease.

Heat Live @ CJLO

Montreal quartet Heat brought their early 80s NYC style jangle to the CJLO studios to perform live on Hooked on Sonics.  Hot off the heels of their debut EP, and already getting a lot of attention - even down south and across the pond - the band posted up in The Oven and performed two songs from the recording as well as two brand spankin' new tunes.

Omhouse Live @ CJLO

Toronto-based Omhouse has been described as "high-tension music for insomniacs" and "an over-caffeinated Dirty Projectors". Their music oscillates between cathartic, guitar based rock and adventurous, sample-based electronic music.

Kurvi Tasch Live @ CJLO

The awesome Montreal jangle pop/post-punk band Kurvi Tasch came into CJLO this summer to preview some tracks off of their debut record On Firm Ground which just came late August. The band performed the tracks live on the show Under The Influence.

Kurvi Tasch are a three piece who write really tight songs with beautiful meandering melodies. We highly recommend getting a copy of their debut record, which is now officially out.

Saxsyndrum Live @ CJLO

Experimental duo Saxsyndrum – consisting of Nick Schofield on drums and Dave Switch on sax, plus other electronic goodies – came into The Oven at CJLO one summer day in July to play some of their jams live on the Under The Influence show.

Gypsy Chief Goliath Live @ CJLO

Canada's Gypsy Chief Goliath made quite a splash at CJLO when they released their album New Machines of the Night last November.  Fronted by Al Yeti Bones, from such groups as The Mighty Nimbus and Georgian Skull, the group is able to combine classic rock riffs played by Gypsy Dave along with some sweet harmonica from the Rev Brodie Stevenson.

Amphibious Pariah Live @ CJLO

Self-proclaimed Montreal free-sludge group, Amphibious Pariah, dropped by The Oven Studio @ CJLO to play their most recent set of intertwined filthy atmospheric jams for INTO THE COVEN radio show. They recently self-released this recording on cassette, here. These are very kind people playing very frightening music.

Motel Raphaël Live @ CJLO

Motel Raphaël is a young Indie-pop band from Montreal, led by Clara Legault, Emily Skahan and Maya Malkin. They have just debuted their very first studio album, Cable TV, which was entirely crowd funded by a very successful Indiegogo campaign. They love Montreal and are very proud to be part of its rich cultural tapestry.

Motel Raphael stopped by The Oven at CJLO Studios to perform live on Maiden Voyage. They treated us to the following acoustic track off of their new album, and then spoke candidly with Beansie on air.

The Greenery Live @ CJLO

I can’t put my finger on why I like Long Beach, California’s The Greenery, so much. Sure they are a hardcore band, with exactly what you would expect from a hardcore band. They have the crushing rhythm, the breakdowns, the razorblade vocals, and the “I don’t give a damn attitude.” But they are somehow different.
