This week’s episode of The AM (also streaming at CJSW.com):
Atmospheric sounds from Loscil and Earthen Sea, psych-tinged folk from Spencer Cullum and Alabaster DePlume, fuzzed-out guitars from Lorelle Meets the Obscure and Did You Die, and other soul-sating sounds for a Monday morning in March.

This week’s episode of The AM (also streaming at CJSW.com): Take a deep breath and submerge yourself in the oblique sounds of The AM, a three-hour respite from a chaotic world. This week is bookended by new music from Bitchin’ Bajas and Orange Crate Art, finding room for vintage soul, modern pop experiments, jangling guitars, desert psych, and other offbeat albums old and new.
This week’s episode of The AM (also streaming at CJSW.com): The holiday Monday made for a groggier-than-usual episode, but fortunately the music holds up even if the hosting is slightly off. After all, it’s hard to go wrong with new tunes from Cate Le Bon, Animal Collective, Exek, Ombiigizi, Congotronics International, Reptalians, and the list goes on…
This week’s episode of The AM (also streaming at CJSW.com): A Very A.M. Valentines: We’ve got weird love, true love, lighthearted love, love and happiness, and other facets of that many-splendored thing. A bit sentimental, a bit cheesy, but sometimes that’s exactly what you need on a Monday morning.
This week’s episode of The AM (also streaming at CJSW.com): From the foggy beginnings of Easy Idiot’s dungeon-synth and Concretism’s VHS-inspired synths, to the jangling guitars of The Reds, Pinks & Purples and Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever, the first AM of February is here to wake you into a bright, sunshiny week.

This week’s episode of The AM (also streaming at CJSW.com): I didn’t notice that the 400th episode of the AM had come and gone, but celebrating number 402 works just as well. I shared the first song ever played on The AM, and there’ll be a Spotify playlist of the first episode’s tracklist available sometime shortly—visit theam.ca for that one. But, we’re always looking forward, and this week’s mix of cosmic synthesizers, melodic art-rock, and psychedelic surf is your recommended way to ease into the last week of January.
This week’s episode of The AM (also streaming at CJSW.com): New music from Neu’s Michael Rother and Cocteau Twins co-founder Robin Guthrie, a double-dip into the sounds of UK label Woodford Halse, a throwback to the sweet sincerity of Martin Rev’s See Me Ridin’, and other dreamy songs for a Monday morning.
