Mal Blum wrote the songs on 2015's hook-laden You Look a Lot Like Me (Don Giovanni) during a dark, depressive episode. Blum was so down that the musician didn't even think the songs were worth releasing. But as Blum's mental health began to improve, the artist saw the songs in a new light, helped by producer Marissa Paternoster of Screaming Females. "I'm not Robert Frost," Blum sings on understated, meditative pop-punk number "Robert Frost," and that's a good thing. Being Mal Blum is sufficient. Mary Lynn and Counterfeit Madison open. (Safe bet)
