Hey Julie

Julie Doiron probably doesn’t need a hug, but I’d like to give her one anyway. The singer/songwriter sounds a bit like Moon Pix-era Cat Power on her latest solo album, particularly on “Untitled,” but with a backing band that includes her old Eric’s Trip bandmates, she’s the opposite of shy. Woke Myself Up (especially its title track) rocks, in a lo-fi, ramshackle way, and that’s how I like it.
