Canadian songstress Julie Doiron (ex Eric's Trip) returns to Seattle tonight for what I'm sure will be a wonderful performance at the Tractor tonight! Her newest album, I Can Wonder What You Did With Your Day, has been kicking my ass lately, especially the fabulous song "Consolation Prize" (thanks, Stereogum for the MP3!), featuring members of Eric's Trip playing on a song about how weird it is when someone who broke up with you tells you what a great couple you had been. There's something kind of chilling about this pop song (plus the weird noise/glass breaking/oh no! screaming bridge).
Also, check out this video that Rick White from Eric's Trip made for the song "Heavy Snow".
Get there early to catch local openers Erik Blood!
