Jesse Malin

Jesse Malin is gradually making his way to the forefront of the indie, singer-songwriter scene. His latest record, "Glitter in the Gutter," is a 13-song collection of up-tempo rockers and alt-country jems. Packed, too, with guest artists like Ryan Adams (who produced his first solo effort and played in The Fingers with Malin), Jakob Dylan, Queens of the Stone Age's Josh Homme, and Springsteen. Check out an article NME did on the April 5th Springsteen tribute event here. Malin performed "Hungry Heart" with Ronnie Spector. Other performers included The Hold Steady (check out Malin's myspace for a cover of his Hold Steady cover, "You can make him like you"), Badly Drawn Boy, Patti Smith, and Joseph Arthur. He has some upcoming dates in Virginia, Philly, Boston, and New York--go see him if you can!

I especially like the orchestration and harmonies of these two tunes...enjoy!

"Broken Radio (with springsteen)" (4.5/5)
"Aftermath" (4/5)
