A Tear in the Etc. is a bit more vocally oriented than what we've heard from Black Prairie in the past, with violinist Annalisa Tornfelt taking lead vocals on a number of the album's tracks. She wrote the atmospheric, corkscrew-tight "How Do You Ruin Me," and told NPR that she'd been suffering from writer's block for a while, but spontaneously wrote this one on guitar after she got home one night from a neighborhood bluegrass jam.
