Julie Doiron Soundtracks Apple’s Parenthood Spot

Apple turned to the Pixies (by way of a children’s choir) to soundtrack one recent iPhone commercial. As MacRumors reports, they’ve enlisted another indie-rock icon, Julie Doiron of Sub Pop noise-pop act Eric’s Trip, for the musical component of their latest iPhone ad.

Download Ben Gibbard & Death Cab For Cutie’s Best Cover Songs

Last month Death Cab For Cutie returned to the spotlight with “You Are A Tourist,” the great first single and video from their forthcoming Codes And Keys. A sunny addition to our spring playlist, it recalls brighter moments of mid-period Cure when it’s not channeling “Float On.” That’s fitting given how Ben Gibbard’s got five… More »

It immediately reminded me of something from Love Tara. Partly, I guess, because she’s backed on the album by old Eric’s Tri… More »

New Julie Doiron – “Consolation Prize”

In March classic Eric’s Tripper and Phil Elverum collaborator Julie Doiron’s releasing I Can Wonder What You Did With Your Day, her official followup to 2007’s Woke Myself Up.

New Mount Eerie With Julie Doiron And Fred Squire – “Flaming Home” & Lost Wisdom Album Art

Lately we’ve heard Phil Elverum unearthing “Black Wooden” music with “In Moonlight,” playing fragile solo pieces in Poland, and being covered beautifully by Damien Jurado. On “Flaming Home,” Elverum’s teamed up with Julie Doiron and guitarist/Doiron bandmate Fred Squire. It’s from Lost Wisdom, a 10-track collaborative album between the three. This song at least i… More »

New Julie Doiron Video – “No More”

It’s been ten years since Sub Pop’s first Canadian act Eric’s Trip broke up, but that hasn’t stopped Julie (who played bass for ET) from making a name for herself as a cameo-friendly solo artist. Here’s the vid for “No More,” a great track from the forthcoming Woke Myself Up. Those are some conflicted stage… More »
