3.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous, but not for everyone. March 24 2004
Format:Audio CD
I fell in love with Khaela Maricich's voice when I heard the song "Oh Anna" by The Microphones, years before I had any clue who she was. Then one night I met a girl, and played "Oh Anna" for me, and she played "Jet Ski Accidents" for me, and I was euphoric. Her voice is gorgeous and weird, and so are her lyrics and her melodies.
This album has a couple of great tracks on it, but most of them are just too weird even for me. Still, it was worth it to me just for "Jet Ski Accidents" (actually a cover of a song by Wolf Colonel) and "Some Chocolates." I'd highly recommend you go to [...] and lyrics to Khaela's music before you buy it; it's great, but it's definitely not for everyone.
Her stuff isn't like anything else I've ever heard, but if you like The Microphones, this album is probably for you.
(I'm disappointed that she rechristened herself The Blow; her old moniker, Get The Hell Out Of The Way Of The Volcano, was cooler and more fitting. And it's really hard to find her by searching for "The Blow" here on Amazon. You'd probably have to find her full-length by searching for it by name: "The Concussive Carress.")

5.0 out of 5 stars go buy the blow Jan. 30 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is a very good little album. It is very spare and simple and sweet, but has a lot of underlying sexual undertones and weirdness to it too. It doesn't really sound like anything I have, it is folkish in it's simplicity but isn't folk... I would recommend it if you were into K Records artists like Calvin Johnson and Beat Happening and Little Wings, but really is you need a breath of fresh air from horrible commercial music. It's too bad music like this doesn't get played on the radio. The world would be a better place.
Go buy it from the K Records website.

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrible album Aug. 8 2008
By R. Woodward - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This album is absolutely horrible. I wish that I would not have wasted my money on it. It is not nearly as good as the album with "pile of gold" on it.
