• julie doiron Julie Doiron Canta En Español Vol. II (10" LP, £12.75)

    label: Acuarela

    If you didn’t discover Julie Doiron’s music through such an improbable fact as the inclusion of one of her songs (“The Life of Dreams”) in the popular iPhone commercial, you will already know that the distinguished ex-bassist of psychedelic noise-pop band Eric’s Trip, has been publishing her solo works since 1996 which have driven her to a home-loving and intimate folk close to Hope Sandoval or Kristin Hersh. With twelve albums (one of them awarded with the Best Alternative Album in the Canadian Juno Awards), Julie Doiron has become established as one of the most expressive and thrilling songwriters of her generation, thanks also to multiple collaborations with Mount Eerie (in the outstanding and emotional “Lost Wisdom”), Okkervil River or Herman Düne. Spiced up with her prolific live curriculum participating in important Spanish festivals such as Primavera Sound or Tanned Tin, her last LP, “So Many Days” (2012), goes in even deeper into stories with an intimate weight and extreme sensitivity, just as if she was singing by your side, just as if she was whispering her songs into our ears. With the firm hand of Will Oldham in her songwriting and the ability to find treasures in simplicity like Nick Drake, Julie Doiron weaves bittersweet melodies which reveal sober tenderness and direct emotions. After releasing a limited edition 7” in 2015 with “Swan Pond” and “Yer Kids”, “Julie Doiron Canta en Español Vol. II” is the second in a series of albums of adaptations into Spanish of some of Julie’s best songs. Tracklist: 1. Sin hogar (Homeless) / 2. En esta oscuridad (In This Dark) / 3. Brumario (Le Piano) / 4. Amantes de este mundo (Lovers of the World) / 5. Enviando las fotos (Sending the Photographs) / 6. No era él (The Wrong Guy) / 7. Báilame (Dance Me)
