My good friend Doe Paoro returned with a new EP, Ink on the Walls, this week, marking a vast departure in production from her previous works. She collaborated with S. Carey of Bon Iver fame, and he added necessary tightness to her raw sound. Justin Vernon – surprise! – is featured as well. The soul is still very much there, and Doe’s vocals, as usual, propel the tunes forward, but she needed this to gain ground on the upper echelon of indie artists, and that she has done. Watch her just-released video for “Walking Backwards,” the strongest track on the EP and give the full thing a listen below.
