Julie Doiron - Woke Myself Up

New Brunswick Songstress Julie Doiron.

My friend Sue from Halifax Nova Scotia has been staying with me for the past few weeks working on a photography project on the LA river. Yesterday she bought me a vintage portable record player at a barber shop in Silverlake. The needle skips and there is a slight warping but damnit Carol King has never sounded better.

Sue has introduced me to a plethora of great new music in the last few weeks. Yesterday she brought home an LP for the singer/songwriter Julie Doiran. Her 2004 album Woke Myself Up was released on JagJaguwar in the US. Julie began her musical career in 1990 playing bass for the psychedelic folk band Eric's Trip - who released several albums on Sub Pop in the mid-nineties.

Julie's haunting voice and intimate lyrics in Woke Myself Up were made for listening on a warbling old record player on a rainy afternoon in Los Angeles. Her laid back ethereal style is what Sue refers to as "classic maritime."  I thought it perfect for today's weather. Enjoy!
