My friend Andrew has described Julie Doiron’s first album as “really good, but emotionally devastating.” Much of her work has to do with the break-up of her marriage, written in very plain prose.
But I haven’t been able to stop listening to her new album, I Can Wonder What You Did With Your Day, which has equal parts naive idealism and bruised cynicism. Her music often seems like it’s folk music with electric instruments, like the song below called Heavy Snow.
If you really want the best track on the album, though, you’ll download the first single (here for free!) called “Consolation Prize.” It’s a breezy, distorted break-up anthem for the ages.
