the blow 09/20/06
Here's a topical post for you.
Got to catch The Blow opening for Architecture in Helenski last Wednesday. Or, to be more accurate, I saw Khaela Maricich, one half of the Blow duo, rocking the microphone. Jona Bechtolt, the self-described "technological multi talent" and the Blow beat-master was not present, as he was off on some other tour.
But even without Jona, Khaela put on a great show highlighting some of her older tracks - while devoting the bulk of the show to songs from the upcoming Blow record - Paper Television which is dropping on October 14th. If you havent heard the new songs - head over to their MySpace page and check them out.
Highlights from the show off of Paper Television include Parentheses and Big U - which has got to be the oddest *Love Song* (or maybe thats Lust Tribute?) I've ever heard. But the highlight of the evening for me was the artfully-rendered, accapella version of How Naked Are We Going to Get - featuring significantly better timing then its studio counterpart on 2003's The Concussive Caress, Or, Casey Caught Her Mom Singing Along With The Vacuum
Enjoy - and buy the new Blow album on 10/24/2006.
