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 in a way that forces the listener to re-examine their own loves. Also important to the recording of this album was a reunion of sorts with her musical past. Founding Eric’s Trip bandmate Rick White produced and played on the entire album, and a handful of the songs contain the entire original Eric’s Trip band nucleus that took the Canadian indie underground by storm 15 years ago. Working with an old friend and collaborator like White was key to this album’s intensely vulnerable and emotionally raw tone. 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’.Julie Doiron began her career in music in 1990 at the age of 18 in Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada playing bass in Eric’s Trip, a folky yet psychedelic band that were to become the undisputed underground darlings of Canadian music. Eric’s Trip were the first of many maritime Canadians signed to Sub Pop and found international recognition, releasing several albums and touring widely. Following 1996’s ‘Purple Blue’, Eric’s Trip announced their breakup and Julie Doiron embarked on her solo career, first releasing songs as Broken Girl but later under her own name. She has released six full-lengths and two EPs prior to ‘Woke Myself Up’, including the Juno Award-winning ‘Julie Doiron & The Wooden Stars’ album.
