A literary reference as a title. A verse melody that sounds like it should have been on the Juno soundtrack. A rather functional chorus tune that borders on being dangerously infectious. All with a charming lofi production that makes it painfully obvious where the source of inspiration comes from.
So yes, this Anti-folk/Pop-rock hybrid ditty is clearly aimed at a particular audience (misfit nerdy teens?) and the cutesy video (with Brocollini the dog!) rather seals the deal as well.
If all this is making sense, then you are going to like Mal Blum and her new album – You Look A Lot Like Me – what’s not to like about music made on its own terms?
