If you weren’t afraid of the dentist before, now you will be! In Julie Doiron’s new video for “Consolation Prize,” Fred Squire plays the frightening dentist pointing sharp objects at Julie Doiron’s gums. Luckily, Doiron manages to escape the dentist chair by fending him off with a novelty-sized toothbrush, but not before losing a very magical tooth! The best music video to incorporate dental hygiene, ever.
We are proud to announce a second free mp3 from Doiron’s lo-fi masterpiece I Can Wonder What You Did With Your Day, the melodic and optimistic “When Brakes Get Wet.” Download HERE.
Jagjaguwar has long known that Julie Doiron is a Canadian National Treasure, but here is proof: June 7th in Bruno, Saskatchewan was declared Julie Doiron Day. The mayor presented her name on a bench, and we are so happy that someone was there to film it.
We have a great video of Doiron performing a solo set at Bob Boilen’s desk for a “Tiny Desk Concert” and the staff of National Public Radio. Musicians who want to rock NPR’s office have to turn down their amps, and luckily Julie can offer a killer performance at low volumes.
Watch (and embed) her Tiny Desk Concert at NPR.
Back in March at SXSW, Julie Doiron and Fred Squire met our friends from the Quad Cities and recorded a Daytrotter session. We encouraged them to rock out as hard as they could for as early in the morning as it was. Results: tremendous. Download it HERE.
