This really is supplemental, but well worth the downloads if you swoon over Khaela's voice. Also worth it just to learn how to do Little Sally.

Interview: The Blow

By Tobi Vail, Contributor

The Blow's new self-titled album is Khaela Maricich's first release in seven years. Most artists who pause that long between records struggle to regain their momentum. Instead, Maricich's reinvention of the group — this time with girlfriend Melissa Dyne — is the next logical chapter in girl-penned indie-electronic pop, sure to satisfy anyone anxiously awaiting a sequel to 2006's Paper Television. Their artistic partnership celebrates the camaraderie of commitment through creative work, and sounds like… more »


36 Songs To Soothe the Pain

By Wondering Sound Staff, Contributor

Whether you're happily married or told Cupid to shove it a long time ago, we can all agree on one thing: to quote the one-and-only Nazareth, "Love hurts/ Love scars/ Love wounds/ And mars." Or something. That's why we went ahead and compiled a list of 36 Songs To Soothe the Pain, from the bloodletting confessionals of Neko Case, Bright Eyes and Sunny Day Real Estate to the melancholic melodies of Sigur Rós, the Shangri-Las… more »

They Say All Music Guide

For almost any other label — even underground, independent ones — an album such as this would be viewed as willfully obtuse in its lo-fi production and casual enigmatic minimalism. For K Records, it’s just another day at the office. And for Khaela Maricich, the singer/songwriter synonymous with Blow, these nonchalantly homespun songs are actually a slight expansion of the approach she used when she was releasing her work under the name Get the Hell Out of the Way of the Volcano. Maricich sings inscrutable, slightly child-like, seemingly off-the-cuff tunes about chocolates, people who bury themselves in the air, and making out to a Hüsker Dü record (the last of which is actually a cover of a song, “Jet Ski Accidents,” by fellow K artist Wolf Colonel). Although this might have the feel of a particularly arty improvised living-room session among friends, the arrangements are actually varied if extremely stark, with the skittering electronic tones, the funereal organ, basic guitar, primitive bossa nova, or handclaps serving as bare-bones musical beds. Too, Maricich often overdubs vocals upon herself to create eerie, slightly dissonant harmonies that can make her sound roughly like a lo-fi counterpart to some of Laurie Anderson’s more accessible work. This has its modest rewards for those looking for sounds that are both humble and intensely personal, though it’s really more of an EP than a “bonus album,” its nine songs falling just shy of 20 minutes in length. – Richie Unterberger
