Great Stuff


"Hey Boy" — reasons why he didn't call ... "a), you're gay, b) you've got a girlfriend" ... This music is so smartly constructed that it never comes off sounding like chick-pop.

One of my favorites.


This is an excellent album, and not a single track is less than great. My favorite has probably got to be Hock It, but the others aren't far behind. I also recommend checking out the remix of this album, as a few of those tracks are quite good.

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.

They Say All Music Guide

Like other entries in the States Rights Records/Slender Means Society’s Pregnancy Series, the Blow’s Poor Aim: Love Songs is a CD EP that’s kind of a sampler of the act’s sound, or an airing out of material that doesn’t have a natural home on their longer releases. Here Blow consist of Khaela Maricich and Jona Bechtolt, laying down a sound that’s more funk-oriented than Blow’s early recordings, though it still has a minimal electro-pop feel. The seven-song, 17-minute disc sounds a little like the Raincoats had they gone in a more R&B-oriented direction, though not as fully produced as the Raincoats. While the songs are more forceful and thought-out than Maricich’s early work, they’re still basic, impulsive-sounding statements, and ones that might actually have a chance at popularity among more adventurous dance-pop-oriented listeners if the disc got the exposure. – Richie Unterberger
