Before Jon Lajoie was known as YouTube’s satirical rap-master “Everyday Normal Guy” or The League’s guitar-toting daydreamer “Taco,” he spent most of his time playing in bands in and around his hometown of Montreal. Wolfie’s Just Fine is his long-awaited return to making music independent of comedy.
Without the punchlines, but with the same sort of punchy lyrics and catchy hooks that Lajoie’s fans have to come expect, Wolfie’s Just Fine introduces a new-yet-familiar side of the Montreal-born artist. In I Remembered but Then I Forgot, the debut album from Wolfie’s Just Fine, Lajoie’s raw vocal ability and his penchant for weaving together harmony-heavy melodies with nostalgic sensibilities positions him in a unique world between alternative and indie folk. Lajoie credits an eclectic roster of artists for helping shape his musical proclivities and point of view.
I Remembered but Then I Forgot features ten original songs whose inspirations range from the perils of young love to the strange ways in which B-movies and summer blockbusters can leave an imprint on our lives. The album is a collage of memories—many inspired by Lajoie’s experiences growing up with eight brothers and sisters—exploring not only the fickle nature of recollection, but also how our memories evolve over time.
“Right now,” says Lajoie, “I'm focused on writing about personal experiences. It's the only thing I feel like I have any authority to talk about.”
Produced by Joe Corcoran, the album was recorded at Station House studio in Echo Park, CA. It was engineered by Mark Reins, mixed in Seattle by Phil Ek, and mastered by Greg Calbi at Sterling Studios in New York. I Remembered but Then I Forgot will be released in April 2016 through Lajoie’s label, Normal Guy Records.
