Acclaimed, artful electro-pop duo the Blow moved to Brooklyn and are about to release their new, self-titled LP this October, which is their first album in seven years. Band founder Khaela Maricich and I have a chat about it, jury duty, the state of modern pop music, and their involvement in Wavelength Toronto’s ALL CAPS! Island Festival this August 10 and 11. In fact, before you hear from the Blow (including their excellent new single, “Make it Up”), Wavelength organizers Jonny Dovercourt and Ryan McLaren meet me and a dog named Socks in a Toronto park to talk about why this is the final ALL CAPS! Island Festival and why the off-leash zone is serious business.
