Contributor Limelight: Mekenna Malan
Since January of 2020, Contributing Writer Mekenna Malan has made her mark through a hefty, consistent output of music coverage. Whether its through reviews of artists such as U.S. Girls and NIIKA or via interview features with the likes of Born Ruffians, self-described “indie-music junkie” and life-long SLUG reader Malan’s excitement for music and her empathy for her subjects’ craft and lived experiences shines. This month, find Malan’s vignettes on two Craft Lake City Virtual DIY Festival performers, Sonali Loomba and Milk Money, and head to SLUGMag.com to read her recent online-exclusive interview feature with Adam Klopp of Choir Boy. With her vibrant, personable prose and her clear passion for a breadth of musical styles and approaches, Malan is vital to SLUG’s music discourse. We’re continually delighted to see what she writes next!
