“A geeky cultural gem” – CBC

“Incredible, spooky, funny, and monumentally charming” – BoingBoing

“The thing about Mal’s songs is that they will rip your heart out of your…chest but also will make you laugh at the same time”

Chris Gethard – The Chris Gethard Show

In many ways, Mal Blum’s most recent album You Look a Lot Like Me is a mental health record, written when Mal was at a low point, and re-worked and polished at a high one. Though at times deceptive, large themes of avoidance (“Reality TV,” “Better Go” and “Cool Party”), escapism (“Iowa” and “New Orleans”), isolation (“Split, Splitting), obsessive thought patterns (“Archive,”) and even the therapeutic process itself (“The Shrink Thinks”) are carefully woven throughout the LP.
