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. All we’ve heard so far is “Consolation Prize,” but it finds Doiron in more of an electric (not acoustic) Eric’s Trip mode than recent solo turns. Makes sense: Her Trip mate Rick White handled bass and keyboards to her guitars and voice. (Fred Squire, who also played on Lost Wisdom, again took care of drums.) For those of you who’ve missed the ragged moments of Love Tara, etc., this ought to do the trick.
