JULIE DOIRON Video For “No More” Available

Julie Doiron’s new album, “Woke Myself Up”, hit the streets this week. It’s a raw, straight-to-the point collection that finds the singer reuniting with her old bandmates from Eric’s Trip for their first recordings in over 10 years. The Onion’s AV Club says, “Those with a taste for the unadorned, pretty, and emotionally striking… couldn’t do much better.”

“No More” is the second video from “Woke Myself Up.” While the first, “Me And My Friend”, was a sweet, low-key affair, “No More” represents a sleeker side of Ms. Doiron. While Julie is the focal point, the concept of loss and ending is evoked by a variety of people lip-syncing the song. With red, gold and brown being the dominant colours, the effect is that of the sepia tone of old movies and photographs.

New JULIE DOIRON, NURSE & SOLDIER Records Available For Pre-order

Our two stellar January releases are now available for pre-order, including:

- Julie Doiron – Woke Myself Up

On Julie Doiron?s first album of new material in over two years, she addresses in her signature intimate songwriting style both the heights and the fallout of love and love lost, in a way that forces the listener to reexamine their own loves. What?s captured is timeless and universal, in the same way as Cat Power?s Moon Pix, Leonard Cohen?s Songs of Love And Hate, and Joni Mitchell?s Blue.

- Nurse & Solidier – Marginalia – (on Brah Records)

Nurse & Soldier?s Marginalia is gentle, bewildered psych-pop from the partnership of Robertson Thacher (aka Bobby Matador of Oneida) and longtime collaborator Erica Fletcher. The two have been making music together since their teenage years, a long history reflected in the intimate nature of the music. Far more vulnerable and raw than Oneida, Nurse & Soldier sing about longing, betrayal and reconciliation; the sound of Marginalia is a confused murmur, as opposed to Oneida?s punishing roar.

JULIE DOIRON Returns With “Woke Myself Up”

It’s closing in on two decades since Julie Doiron made her musical debut with seminal New Brunswick indie-rock band, Eric’s Trip. The intervening years have seen her grow as an artist and a person, releasing records, publishing a book of photography and raising a family. Her new record, “Woke Myself Up,” is packed with the details and insights that come from a full and engaging life; it’s a welcome return.

“Woke Myself Up” ? due out January 23, 2007 ? is Julie’s first release since 2004′s “Goodnight Nobody.” Since her solo debut as “Broken Girl,” Julie has honed a reputation for stark, confessional songwriting and “Woke Myself Up” is no exception. Equally warming and heartbreaking, “Woke Myself Up” retains the emotional intensity at the core of Julie’s starkly beautiful songs.

For a taste of what “Woke Myself Up” has to offer, take a look at the video for “Me And My Friend” or listen or download “No More” on the Jagjaguwar website. They’re up and running now!

JULIE DOIRON Emerges From Canadian Winter And Wishes To Share Her Warmth With You

This past weekend our very own Julie Doiron foreshadowed what promises to be a buoyant, yet vigorous 2006, with the start of a month-long Canadian tour. The chanteuse from north of the border intends to rouse our comrades out of the hibernation mode before presenting the appropriate documents and crossing into the U.S of A. later this fall for endless touring. I know what you’re thinking–a large amount of touring usually coincides with the release of some tangible aural document. Your hunch is correct, my friend, for Julie has recorded an album’s worth of new material that should see an October-ish release date here in the States. The as-yet-unnamed full-length which was recorded with former Eric’s Trip members is already causing a commotion around here in the Jagjaguwar office. Perhaps if you ask nicely we’ll post some mp3s closer to the release date?
