"No More Singing In The Woods"

I picked up my first new CD of 2007 tonight, Julie Doiron's "Woke Myself Up." This is the first album of Julie's that I've ever heard, so I can't compare it to the rest of her solo material, but I have to say that it's a pretty good album in general. I was prompted to pick up this disc after I heard that Julie has her old Eric's Trip bandmates backing her up on this one. I thought they might only be on a track or two, but I was pleased to find out that they're pretty much on every track. You can definitely hear the ole Trip on some songs. So, anyone who's a fan of Eric's Trip should run out and pick up this album. It's not like a new Eric's Trip album, but it's probably as close as we'll ever get.

And for good measure, here's a video for a song off the album called "No More."

yeah I cant really say Julie is a high energy or rockin act but she can be nice to listen to in a more melancholy mood. I recently saw her on Tv and even though she forgot the words there was something endearing about her songs and guitar style.

I LOVE it! I was, of course, aware and in awe of Eric's Trip when I was a wee pup, but I've mellowed considerably since then, and wouldn't likely listen to them now... but this is right up my alley! That album now tops my Birthday wishlist... here's hoping I can get a copy in Onterrible.
