Julie Sokolow writes sparse lo-fi anthems that have such a personal feel to them its as if you've stumbled across someone's musical diary. Recorded straight into the mic in line on a powerbook, the tight strum of guitar and occasional piano are constantly awash in a slight hiss that gives you a feeling that Sokolow puts no barriers between herself and the listener. The sounds pour directly from her soul and into your ears. Wryly self deprecating and heart wrenchingly honest, she's able to remind you that often the greatest moments in your life are those that you cringe to remember. Julie's latest album Something About Violins is out soon on Western Vinyl.
