MUSIC: The Blow

I absolutely missed the boat on The Blow. It's quite embarassing, actually, that it took so long to come upon this Portland duo (see indieblogheaven, fabulist, slutty fringe). Interesting beats and a captivating set of lungs on the lead singer, Khaela. Here's a track off their recently released full-length called Paper Television. It's awesome.

::: The Blow - True Affection (from Paper Television)
::: The Blow - Parentheses (from Paper Television)

Here's a bonus track off of the bonus disc included in Yeti Magazine's issue #4. The disc has loads of awesome unreleased tracks (which i posted on here).

::: The Blow - Get Around (from Yeti #4)
