Boomkat Product Review:
At 18 Julie Doiron was playing bass in Canadian Sub Pop-signed outfit Eric’s Trip, and between 1990 and 1996 the group were darlings of their homeland’s indie scene. Thereafter, Doiron set forth on a solo career that has seen her record six albums prior to this one. This latest album sees Doiron reuniting with her Eric’s Trip bandmate, Rick White who produces and plays on the entire record. Woke Myself Up manages to retain a quality of emotional frailty (she first released solo material under the less than cheery moniker, Broken Girl), despite Doiron’s cool, almost aloof delivery. The single, ‘No More’ is an obvious standout. It’s a beautifully lonely sounding affair, with Doiron’s exquisite harmonies in the chorus bringing to mind Chan Marshall during Cat Power’s most melancholy moments. Clearly, these past 15 years or so of writing songs has paid off for Doiron, who with this album really stakes her claim as a major force in the overcrowded world of indie singer-songwriters. Highly recommended.
