Julie Doiron:: I Can Wonder What You Did With Your Day

I Can Wonder What You Did With Your Day is Julie Doiron’s new album. Recorded at Rick White’s (Eric’s Trip) home studio northwest of Toronto, White played bass and keyboards, and Fred Squire played drums and some lead guitar on the record. This album is not bombastic or especially upbeat, though a nice slow burn featuring songs about life done in fairly casual honest presentation. I Can Wonder opens with “The Life of Dreams,” showing Julie in isolation musing about good people and their subsequent value. Following the opener, “Spill Yer Lungs,” brings out a sludgy distortion juxtaposed with an effective poky rhythm. “Tailor” is one of my favorites, done with a shuffled beat and rawhide riff; though, the quick paced “Consolation Prize,” is memorable for overall feeling, its upward inertia, and guitar machinations going off in the background. After numerous listens, I Can Wonder What You Did With Your Day comes off as an amenable record with a quaintness easy to get your head around, stirred by variations of fuzz guitar, effective songwriting, and other nice accents.
