The Golden Dogs - CBC In-Session

Just as KCRW's Morning Becomes Eclectic showcases great musical talent, the same can be said for Canada's version, CBC's Radio 3. The mainstream takes a break as CBC 3 presents concerts and studio sessions by some of the hottest "alternative" bands in the country. They are not restricted to Canadian talent, but also include international alt-heroes such as Billy Bragg, Cracker, Spoon, Minus 5, and The Shins. Back a few years ago these concerts were broadcast Saturday night on CBC Radio 2 (FM) under the name Just Concerts. This was an excellent opportunity for fans (like me) to record these shows in brilliant FM radio quality to trade and share with our neighbors to the south.

This show is from Toronto's Golden Dogs who have released two fine albums, 2003's Everything In 3 Parts and 2006's Big Eye Little Eye. The band has an energetic infectious sound that has gained considerable indie popularity with their latest release. They have been through Winnipeg twice in the past half year and I regretted each time I missed seeing them, as I've heard they put on quite the live show.

note: For some reason the songs may not download or play properly. The Broken West songs from the previous post seem to work fine, so I'm not sure what's up with that? I'll investigate and try to get these songs back. For a listen go to CBC radio 3 and click on concerts & sessions on the top bar, click the browse by name: t-z , scroll down to The Golden Dogs and click the session in Vancouver. From there you can play all the songs or one at a time....enjoy!
