Like other entries in the States Rights Records/Slender Means Society's Pregnancy Series, the Blow's Poor Aim: Love Songs is a CD EP that's kind of a sampler of the act's sound, or an airing out of material that doesn't have a natural home on their longer releases. Here Blow consist of Khaela Maricich and Jona Bechtolt, laying down a sound that's more funk-oriented than Blow's early recordings, though it still has a minimal electro-pop feel.
The seven-song, 17-minute disc sounds a little like the Raincoats had they gone in a more R&B-oriented direction, though not as fully produced as the Raincoats. 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.
