“Mallman’s ‘70s-redolent music could be huge...” – Pitchfork
“It’s a noir battlefield of car crashes and lightning strikes. It’s about being too sad for words,” Mark Mallman says of his new album Double Silhouette, out this week and streaming now at Spinner.
Dark themes not-withstanding, the album is full of catchy tracks including the latest single “Dirty Dishes” which has exclusively debuted at diffuser.fm. Mallman will embark on a two-week tour in support of the album next week, kicked off by a hometown record release show at the Ritz Theater in Minneapolis tomorrow, October 13th. See below for a complete list of dates.
Drawing a line between insanity and genius is a ritual that Mark Mallman has built a career on, earning him spots on stages with artists as diverse as Green Day, Cat Power and Guided By Voices. Mallman’s songs have also found their way to the airwaves of MTV, VH1, NPR, and his music has been written about in Rolling Stone, Pitchfork and Time Out New York. Mallman is also a featured contributor to the “Music Theory for Dummies” series alongside Bob Moog, John Cage and Andrew Bird.
Perhaps nothing characterized Mallman as a madman more than his signature “Marathon” events, the latest of which took place in September and saw him performing a 150-hour-long song non-stop (even in his sleep!) from the back of a van traveling from NYC to LA. The event was covered by Wired, USA Today, NBC News 4 New York and many more.
Mark Mallman’s new album Double Silhouette was released this week. Mark Mallman is available for interviews. Contact Josh Bloom at Fanatic for more information.
