Blowing Up The Spot

The Blow

Paper Television, the new album from Portland based duo The Blow just dropped in my lap. I decided to get it on the back of a glowing write up on Boomkat having known nothing about them previously and it’s certainly worth the purchase!

Kaela Maricich’s vocal talents are clear from the first song, but they are backed up with some mad interesting production from Jona Bechtolt which switches between diplo, swing, devo and timbaaland. I’m tempted to say it sounds like Regina Spektor being given the hollertronix treatment (which makes me sound like a twat but hey what do I care?)

A quick peek at hype machine demonstrates how painfully behind I am on The Blow (Paper Television is their fourth album!!) but i’m just glad I’ve discovered them – this is a boss album! Here are two of my favourite tracks from the album
Download:

The Blow – The Big U

The Blow – The Long List Of Girls
