Hometown: Brooklyn, New York

Genre: Pop-Punk

Why We're Excited: Mal Blum writes deadpan, funny, frequently self-effacing songs about the hidden meanings and mundane minutiae found in day-to-day life: watching TV, feeling alone, fumbling for the right things to say. As with the singer's spiritual forebears in The Moldy Peaches, Blum's songs practically brim over with clever ideas and keen observations, interspersed with notes of raw, unvarnished humanity.
