I’ve only seen Mal perform live once but it was a memorable evening at the Croc, with a headlining set by Mary Lambert (disclaimer: Mary’s an old friend whom I love very much). Every Mary show is Queer Prom—so many tears and hugs and shrieks, and always at least two non-str8 couples getting engaged. It’s an unhinged circus of emotion, which made it that much more impressive to me that Mal stood out. Their plainspoken but emotionally elevated pop pulls heartstrings like taffy, with a heavy resemblance to the softhearted-honesty-amid-maintained-weirdness of genre greats like Jonathan Richman and Arthur Russell. Their fifth album Pity Boy just dropped and is packed full of new LGBTQIA classics like “See Me,” which speaks to the oppressive and simultaneous erasure and overexposure of being trans in 2019.
