The fact that New York singer-songwriter Mal Blum is transgender and non-binary has absolutely no impact on the potential likability or relatability of their new album Pity Boy, no matter how you identify. That’s a testament to Blum’s keen ear for pitch-perfect punky pop songs and their command of lyrical themes that will resonate with anyone, as long as they’re a human being who has felt feelings. Love, loss, hope, despair, fitting in, standing out — Blum writes about all of life’s sharp corners and confusing curves in a way that's about as close to universal as you can get. “I don’t belong,” they sing in “See Me,” a rumbling rocker about simply trying to exist in the world, “though it helps to play along.” Preach, Mal! — BS
