Treadles, a dark indie solo project by Kara Stafford, makes its first recorded appearance this year with a brooding cover of “Doctor Blind” by Emily Haines of Metric and Broken Social Scene. Retaining Haine’s arrant noir inflection, Treadles personalizes the original’s ethereal, glimmering atmosphere with a heavier, more arid instrumentation reminiscent of True Widow. The patient despair and phantasmagoric perspective of “Doctor Blind” enhance when delivered in Stafford’s tenebrous voice and make the cover a worthy showcase of Treadles’ gripping gloom.
