Channeling much of the raw, but inventive R&B stylings that appeared on last year's Slow To Love , Brooklyn singer-songwriter Doe Paoro embraces old soul in a new way on her latest track, "New Lows". The skittering number, including its deep-dipping, sashaying beat, complement her well-toned vocals, and showcase her ability to stretch from haunting croon to burning wail without breaking stride. Listen to it below. "New Lows" is out now as a 73 via White Iris Records.
R&B innovation continues to grow with Brooklyn's BTW emeritus Doe Paoro. Her new release, a 73 via White Iris Records, includes this jilting, jittery "New Lows." The song sounds almost as if it's haunted, giving a whole new spin on the idea of "soul" music. Check it out below. Read More...
Graphic by Madeline Rosemurgy ( Source ) As the week wore down, we started looking forward to our unofficial The Wild Honey Pie party, the Beehive, at Uncorked. The entire lineup more than delivered. Check out photos below of Widowspeak, The Eastern Sea, Doe Paoro, You Won’t, Conveyor, Pearl and the Beard, The Last Bison, High Highs , Mikhael Paskalev, ON AN ON, Little Tybee, Pree, Eli Mardock, and Frances Cone.

Yes, another year, another total shambles of a podcast. Oddly enough, the one time this has been even vaguely together was the one year the BBC happened to show up to film it. How we managed to get it together for that one occasion I have no idea. Maybe the TV cameras scared us into behaving. Anyhow, this year's podcast is probably the biggest shambles since the very first SXSW podcast. We are joined, at various times, by Mrs. Toad, Young Ian, Pandy from Gerry Loves Records, Ben Soep, the managers of Tango in the Attic and We [...]
We posted about the ear catching sounds created by John and Luke, aka Zebra Safari , not too long ago and they've now put out a couple more great productions worth adding to the collection. Their latest effort is an entrancing take on Doe Paoro's Born Whole , which mixes the near ghostly vocals and classical vibe together with tribal sounding beats. It's a minimalistic approach that works incredibly well with the original. Pick up the download below, and keep your ears open for more from this talented Swedish duo soon. DOWNLOAD [...]
Esteemed poet Emily Dickenson once stated that fame is a fickle food upon a shifting plate. The spotlight is a double edged sword, and those who are placed within are both rewarded by it's benefits and thwarted by it's scrutiny. Every year a handful of artists manage to tread faster than others, emerging from the underground and bursting forth into the light of recognition. It is these chosen few that we as audiophiles obsess over, marveling at their rise to fame and salivating over the good fortune. Yet as we scramble to jump aboard the bandwagon, we often overlook the [...]

Facebook I seem to be saying sorry for forgetting about you a bit recently, here's another case I'm afraid I posted about Doe Paoro's exquisite debut single " Can't Leave You " over a year ago now, a track so good the only words I could muster together at the time were "holy fucking wow". A delay from my posting until her album, the rinse-repeat nature of new band blogging and a sheer excess of bands to post about (my draft folder has 150+ bands I'd like to write about give [...]
New York born singer and instrumentalist Doe Paoro garnered some attention for her debut album Slow To Love last year. It was marked out for its fusion of minimalist post-dubstep production and her unusual and affecting vocal tones. Well traveled, in recent months she has spent time living and writing in Sweden, and wandering the Himalayas alone, studying a form of Tibetan opera known as the Lhamo. As a Brooklyn native with a thirst for musical exploration, the influences on her forthcoming album are sure to be strange and wonderful. Further [...]
You've been asking us if we'll be down in Austin, Texas for SXSW this year. Well, the answer is "hell yes we'll be in Austin!" It seems as if the slow build up to the year's most important/fun music conference/festival has, in two days, become a tidal wave of excitement and nerves. Having worked on putting together this party for the last months, we are extremely proud to share the lineup and invite you to this year's The Beehive down at SXSW, a party made possible by KOHLER and their new [...]
After giving this one listen and seeing that Freelance Whales had a hand in it, I did a double-take. The track sounds remixed by an electronic DJ, not our beloved, rockin' Whales. The beginning dreamy piano riff becomes saturated with dueling, soulful vocal lines and heavy synths. Doe Paoro 's voice and haunting lyrics are impossible not to sing along to. The young and talented singer-songwriter mixed with experimental indie-rockers makes for a silky-smooth and tasty track you can't listen to just once. All musicians involved call NYC home, so let's cross our fingers for some future [...]
Doe Paoro's spacey, self-described “Ghost Soul” music is already breathtaking and groovy, but when you add longtime The Wild Honey Pie favorites Freelance Whales into the mix, it gets even better. “I’ll Go Blind” is a great, silky pop gem, and this Freelance Whales remix somehow makes it shine even brighter. Check it out above.
Throughout the course of my life I have not been what you would call an R&B listener. A brief history of my dabbling: I owned a cassette copy of Boyz II Men's II because who didn't? A year later I nabbed Mariah Carey's Daydream on CD, mesmerized by the tree swing party that was the "Always Be My Baby" video . I bought What's Going On during that formative music geek phase when you plow through any and all "greatest albums of all time" lists (a ritual that blurs the line between the [...]

Photo credit: Matthew Saville I want to start off by welcoming back this feature to The Wild Honey Pie. It's been over three weeks since I've been able to post our suggested shows, and for that, I apologize. Fuck you Superstorm Sandy. Anyways, this week is stacked with great concerts across Manhattan and Brooklyn. Unfortunately, the subways still aren't running at full capacity so it might be tough for people to get to Williamsburg. But then again, that might actually be a good thing. Take that as you will. Don't miss Tame Impala [...]
Russ Manning, le jeune artiste originaire de Brooklyn qui se cache derrière l'alias Rush Midnight , nous dévoile son prochain EP. Intitulé tout simplement +1 , ce tout premier single annoncé pour le 30 Octobre prochain via Cascine , nous annonce un avenir prometteur pour l'artiste. On retrouve sur ce disque, cinq titres exclusifs dont un en collaboration avec Doe Paoro ainsi que deux autres produits par Twin Shadow lui-même. Une pop brillante et innovante qu'on se plait à écouter en boucle et sans se lasser. [...]
DETAILS ABOUT THIS SHOW + STREAMING COMPILATION OF ALL 14 BANDS HERE . It took us a couple of weeks to come up with a title for this Deli official CMJ show. On Wednesday October 17 at The Living Room we'll have a fair amount of orchestral instruments on stage, from You Bred Raptors'? frantic cello to Cuddle Magic' s gentle winds and xylophone , without forgetting the sparse piano lines of Doe Paoro and Starlight Girls ' retro flute. But even though all these instruments are [...]
Right now in New York City it's the calm before the storm. Next week the CMJ Music Marathon will blow through with its hundreds of bands, industry panels & presentations, and nightly showcases, and it will be nothing short of pure intensity. Aside from the cheap booze and sometimes free events, the music is the festival's main focus and best part because for nearly one week seemingly all the best new and established acts from various genres will descend upon this city and show us their stuff. I'll be covering it for The Music [...]
