Biography

Born in Queens, New York, Jesse Malin’s passion for music began at an early age. Upon receiving his first nylon stringed acoustic guitar, Jesse taped an old 1950’s reel-to-reel recorder with a beat-up attached microphone to its body and the soon-to-be songwriter began his musical career…

Malin began playing live the age of twelve years old in the seminal hardcore band ... Read more in Amazon's Jesse Malin Store

Editorial Reviews

When Jesse Malin met producer Ted Hutt (Lucero, Flogging Molly, The Gaslight Anthem) one drunken night at a local bar, their talk of making a record fast, loose, and raw, was the beginning of Hutt s quest to create a record that would encompass Malin s roots and evolution from hardcore thrasher to punk/folk singer-songwriter. The album s basic tracks were laid in three days at Greenpoint, Brooklyn s Mission Studios, and the rest at Sonic Youth s Think Tank Studios in Hoboken, NJ. Filled with the characters Malin does best messengers and misanthropes, hipsters and hypocrites and as always, his constant themes of redemption, nightlife, heartbreak, and survival, LOVE IT TO LIFE a sentiment taken from a ticket stub Joe Strummer autographed for Jesse was built with desperate optimism that shouts in gang vocals that no matter how bad it gets, you re never alone.

This album fits in with a heretofore unidentified niche on the American music scene: lean, driving music that is played and sung with passion, is well-produced, and wears its heart on its sleeve. Think Paul Westerberg or Ryan Adams with a few musical flourishes all its own.

The songs are all good here--"Burning the Bowery" kicks things up with a muscular charm, and the rest of the tracks keep that guitar/bass/drums/rough-hewn vocals thing going. The desperation evident on track two when he shouts "you don't get your money back here!" lets the listener know that this is personal, as indeed it is.

My personal favorites on the album right now are "Disco Ghetto" and "Lonely at Heart," a ballad-riffic album closer which reminds me of Westerberg or Adams while briefly lifting from Elvis Costello ("you drink in self-defence"). While he does lift a little bit of attitude and structure from the artists listed above (Westerberg in particular), Malin's still got a distinct personality and distinction of his own. From name-checking Ken Kesey novels to his rocking explorations of the night life of people who simply don't know any other way to live, this album really does a lot of things well. It rocks, it rolls, and it's both intelligent and passionate at the same time.

A very good record.

I heard the tune "Burning the Bowery" and had to buy the CD. All I can say is this is a tight Cd with great tunes. Not one dog in the bunch, but it's "Burning the Bowery" that really knocks me out.
Give it chance. Buy Jesse Malin and the St. Marks Social CD "Love it to LIfe", pretty cool, unique stuff.

Just when I thought Glitter was his Abbey Road; he comes out with "Love it to Life" This is a double surprise when you consider the cover "Sleeve" album (waste of time) followed Glitter. I really thought he was done. Although I'm ready to move this to #1; I still can't get Broken Radio out of my head - Best Song in his catalog. My least favorite is probably In Heat; while I must admit it was going to be tough to follow that outstanding debut "FAOD" which just gave me chills I hadn't had since my first intro to Bruce. Ironic that these guys get along. Also as a Westerbeg junkie; I get and agree with some of the comparisons. Let me give you one more excellent songwriter under the radar, who you might like along with Bruce, Jesse & PW - Michael McDermott (check him out!)

This is a fantastic CD. It rocks from start to finish. As usual with Jesse the song writing is top notch. This CD should be playing on everyone's boombox!
