It’s the third album completed with producer Rick White.

 

Love for So Many Days

“The chamomile warmth of Julie Doiron’s voice is deceptive….Doiron has always aimed to capture the kaleidoscopic emotional range of ordinary moments, and accordingly the moods of her songs often transform line by line. Out of this approach, she creates songs that move fluidly, moodily, unpredictably– like life.” – Pitchfork

“…Doiron has come back with a polished collection of folk rock songs about love and sadness.” – CBC Music

“So Many Days is actually quite an optimistic record, on the balance, though it earns its silver linings by freely swimming around in its storm clouds. It gives — like a lot of Doiron’s work — an incredibly rare insight into the bare, honest struggle of simply being a person in the world.” – National Post

JULIE DOIRON plays open bar Fader TV at Heather’s in NYC

On a recent visit to New York City, JULIE DOIRON dipped mid-afternoon into uber-hip watering hole Heather’s as part of Fader’s Open Bar feature. Julie performed “Blue” from her latest Jagjaguwar release, I Can Wonder What You Did With Your Day, with drummer Fred Squire. Quoth Fader: “It was something between her old lo-fi power pop and her new heartbreakingly stoic electric folk, and a perfect accompaniment for that glass of red wine just chilling on the bar.” See it at the Fader site HERE and watch the video below.

JULIE DOIRON Featured On NPR’S Song Of The Day

JULIE DOIRON’S stirring song “Consolation Prize” from the recent release I Can Wonder What You Did With Your Day was recently featured as NPR’s Song of the Day.

NPR had these wonderful things to say about how Julie effectively rips the listener’s heart out with the tune: “In ‘Consolation Prize,’ Doiron addresses a man, living in the aftermath of a breakup, who finds that his friends won’t let him leave it behind. ‘People insisted on telling you what a great couple you had been / They insisted on telling you over again,’ she sings over a rumbling bassline. By bringing up the pain wrought from sympathy, she’s effectively doing the same thing, but Doiron isn’t going for a palliative here. For two short, bruising minutes, she wants listeners to live in the ache of loss.”
