Track Of The Day: The Blow – ‘Afterparty’

If you’re feeling a little sensitive after Friday night’s antics, we recommend listening to the upbeat ‘Afterparty’ by The Blow. It’s an understated “thrust of electro-acoustic punk energy” that’ll have you fixed up and ready to go again in a heartbeat.

Taken from their upcoming album Brand New Abyss, ‘Afterparty’ was written and produced by Khaela Maricich and Melissa Dyne using a production rig the duo painstakingly developed over the past four years. It’s a mothership of patched-together modular synthesizers, ancient samplers and audio production gear.

Brand New Abyss will be released on The Blow’s newly formed WOMANPRODUCER collective, a diverse platform for female, trans and non-binary sonic innovators. WOMANPRODUCER’s conversations, think-tanks and live performances have featured such luminaries as Neko Case, Zola Jesus, Pauline Oliveros, Suzi Analogue, Miho Hatori, Yuka C. Honda, Mirah and Val Inc. We’re loving the work this duo are doing and fully support their project.

Listen to ‘Afterparty’ below, and follow The Blow on Facebook for more updates.
