Julie Doiron - Will You Still Love Me?
You know something's wrong with cd if you can listen to it attentively 5
times over and not remember a single specific thing about it. Such is the
case with Julie's Doiron's new ep just released on Tree Records. From what I
gather, she used to play with the band Eric's Trip (whom I've never heard,
but have heard OF) and has already released a full-length CD on Sub Pop. I can't
compare this to any of that, but I'll try to give an accurate picture of what
this ep sounds like. The first words that come to mind: soft, mellow,
intimate, breathy (I have no clue why), stark. She has a very nice voice, no
doubt about that. Thing is, I usually dig the soft stuff pretty much (Ida,
Low, Jen Wood, Red House Painters, Tom Lomacchio, etc etc) but I just can't
get into this. I don't know why. I guess it just annoys me that I can't
remember a single thing about this; neither the music nor the lyrics stick
out in my mind at all. I guess it just annoys me because I should like this a
whole lot. I guess it just annoys me that the second set of words I come up with
are: nondescript and bland.
