You might have heard of The Blow, right? It's Khaela and Jona, two Portland kids who can bring the beats and the cutesy vocals and max them pretty hard. Their EP Poor Aim: Love Songs sold out on States Rights Records (get it on vinyl), and their new album Paper Television is one of my highly anticipated records of the year, and we gotta wait till October to hear it!
Kind of sort of good news, we've already got a lot of the album in some form. Many of the songs have already been released, be it through Tomlab's Alphabet Series 7"s or compilations. Here's a track off the PDX Pop Now! compilation that will probably get redid all fancy for the record.
