Biography

It’s funny, trying to find words to describe music, isn’t it, because the point of music is that it’s something other than words. Music, at its best, is something better, hanging out in a mystery dimension with its cool friends, sex and drugs, each of them outdoing each other with their refusal to be reduced into sentences. But we will try to describe it anyways.

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 her, and she played "Jet Ski Accidents" for me, and I was euphoric. Khaela's 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 Caress.")

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.

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.
