JULIE DOIRON Swan Pond video & live footage now available

After having filmed a video in Super 8 for her song ‘Me and My Friend’ and a lavish, Lynchian piece for ‘No More’, what better way to follow than with a stop animation video for ‘Swan Pond’? Part ‘Pee-Wee’s Playhouse’ and part Peter Gabriel ‘Sledgehammer’, Tara Wells of Very Silly Monkey creates a captivating world within the span of 2 minutes and 24 seconds.

And before you ask “What about some live black-and-white footage of one of her shows I’ve been hearing so much about?”, let me direct you to a link of her performance June 13 in San Diego at the Che Cafe graciously posted on the blog Hey Wakka Wakka!

JULIE DOIRON duets with Calvin Johnson on Sirius Blog Radio

As loyal readers of the Jagjaguwar news blurbs, you probably already know that Julie Doiron has been on the road in the States with K Records ambassador/minstrel Calvin Johnson for a couple weeks now supporting her latest album ‘Woke Myself Up’. We’ve always wondered what else goes on during a tour when the artists involved aren’t up on the stage. Apparently, it’s more than just staring straight ahead in a van for hours on end. Garrison Reid caught up with Julie and Calvin in Denton, TX before their show to record a stripped-down version of the Halo Benders classic ‘Lonesome Sundown’ for his blog radio.

JULIE DOIRON touring US with Calvin Johnson

Jagjaguwar artist Julie Doiron joins K Records founder Calvin Johnson (ex-Beat Happening, Halo Benders, Dub Narcotic Soundsystem) on a tour playing intimate venues, galleries, churches and art collectives during the month of June. This tour is supporting Doiron’s January release, “Woke Myself Up”, an album detailing the great highs and terrible lows of familial beauty, intimacy and turmoil. Doiron presents a cathartic performance of this heart-wrenching record. The legendary Calvin Johnson is, of course, not to be missed.
