Unreleased Jesse Malin song: “Fallen Angel”

An astute reader sent me a heads-up that Jesse Malin (warbling NYC singer-songwriter-rocker, former frontman for D Generation, longtime pal to Ryan Adams) has posted a previously unreleased song on his MySpace, recorded for The Fine Art of Self-Destruction sessions. Malin combines his fragile and aching voice with a plaintive melody here which builds into a stellar chorus – did I see Ryan Adams and Jesse sing this together in San Francisco in April? Who remembers what they duetted on? It sounded instantly familiar when I heard this warm song with a hint of lonesome country sensibilities.

Fallen Angel – Jesse Malin

Both Jesse’s The Heat album (2004) and The Fine Art of Self-Destruction (2003) are available on eMusic.

  • I had no idea he fronted D-Generation. I saw them open for Social D in Philly and didn’t like them much. I remember one radio-friendly type of hit they had that echoes Black Haired Girl. I like Malin solo stuff. Thank you for all your hard work. You=champion.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
