Since the initial release of Poor Aim, the suspicion that this collection of songs might be palatable to a wider audience has been undeniably confirmed. Right from the start, the songs fell into a beloved repeat-play position in many a heart - and cellphone ringtone. The album was born cradled inside of a tender paradox: built to attract the affections of a mass audience, yet limited by design by its availability for sale to only a few. A few years passed, during which time Jona and Khaela continued their rich pop collaboration with the release of 2006's stunning full-length album Paper Television. With the re-release of Poor Aim: Love Songs, The Blow's initial little gem finally gets its chance to ship out by the thousands and woo the masses. Thank goodness the stereo still works.

Features Song Lyrics for The Blow's Poor Aim: Love Songs album. The Love That I Crave Lyrics. 5. Hock It (YACHT remix) (feat. Claire L. Evans) Lyrics. 6. The Love That I Crave (Strategy's Strata club remix) Lyrics. 7. Hey Boy (DJ Alan Fortarte remix) Lyrics. 8. Let's Play Boys Chase Girls Lyrics. 9. "Come on Petunia" Lyrics.

So the idea for Poor Aim: Love Songs was to make a short record of radio-ready pop hits, at the time a new idea for the Blow. Each record features tricky couples math, d-love metaphors, YACHT's propulsive synthwork and Maricich's pointedly broken syntax: Maricich asked the boy on "Hey Boy" "why you didn't call me?" and told another lover "You don't even believe in outer space/ Equal to the rate at which you doubt my crying face.

While the songs are more forceful and thought-out than Maricich's early work, they're still basic, impulsive-sounding statements, and ones that might actually have a chance at popularity among more adventurous dance-pop-oriented listeners if the disc got the exposure.

And The Blow’s Poor Aim: Love Songs, combines all three so skillfully, Khaela Maricich should receive some kind of award for combining every hallmark of a great indie rock record (which also includes good songwriting and brevity) into one slender package. Part of States Rights Records and The Slender Means Society’s joint Pregnancy Series project, Poor Aim is like a straight girl’s brief response to Stephen Merritt’s 69 Love Songs. And if you heard any of those records, you’re already extremely interested in hearing this record
