The Blow
Paper Television
With love and hate on either side of the same heart, the two can sometimes get confused. What repulses, takes on allure, while that which attracts suddenly repels. With Paper Television the Blow address this dichotomous convergence on aesthetic and emotional levels. As an admitted indulgence in the flash and bombast of contemporary pop, the album acts as both sardonic critique and joyous romp. Over an expanded palette of bump, grind, and polish, Khaela Maricich revisits familiar themes of misdirected affection and unwanted advances. This keen appreciation of conflicted feelings, set against such a morbid fascination with disposable pop, makes for an album as endearing and insightful as it is fun.
