The Blow: Poor Aim: Love Songs

shiroi   4/11/2007   A Library

This is a limited edition EP reissued with additional mixes. It sounds like the Raincoats meets the Young Marble Giants, the Inflatable Boy Clams and Devo’s backup band adding bits of r&b/funk.”Come On Petunia” is actually a very different version of The Police’s “Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic.” “We Are Over Here (Lucky Dragons Remix)” has overlapping children’s voices saying variations of the title which singer Khaela Maricich does the main vocal. Occasional reggae and dance pop elements too. “Hock It” even has a bit of jittery rap element. The smoothest thing is the production; the rest is quirky, minimalist basics with layers, inventive fun. – Shiroi
