Maybe the best album of 2006. The Blow are Jona Bechtolt, who makes the electro beats, and Khaela Maricich, who writes the songs and sings, often with a fast rap-like delivery. I had the chance to see her on sunday, and it was wonderful. Jona wasn't visible once - it was Khaela's show from start to finish. She set the mood by tapping a rhythm on her microphone while singing a soothing acappella called "How naked are we going to get?". She told us that she couldn't bear to do the concert if she knew that anyone couldn't see properly, so she went on to organize everyone in the crowd by height. She put on a great show just singing and dancing, but amazingly, she talked just as much as she sang, and the banter was brilliant from start to finsh. Her monologues were always funny - with touchingly honest explanations to the songs. She really befriended us. So when she then went on to sing the absolutely gorgeous "Parantheresis" it had a lot more impact when we knew what she was singing about. Paper Television is addictive pop music, and the whole album is driven by beats that are dead tight. Don't miss it!
