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.

One of the best albums of the year so far! Jesse's got a great voice, the band rocks, and the songs recall Springsteen at his rockin' best. Highlights: "Burning The Bowery" and "All The Way From Moscow."

I first heard Jesse Malin when he opened for Ryan Adams several years ago. His stage presence and storytelling reminded me of Bruce Springsteen - and all he had with him was his guitar. "Love It To Life" is his best album yet, surpassing even his debut.
