Jesse Malin: new songs from Glitter In The Gutter

Jesse Malin is set to release his third record titled Glitter In The Gutter on March 6th 2007 on Adeline/East West. This album follows his two previous critically acclaimed releases: 2004′s The Heat, and 2002′s The Fine Art of Self Destruction.

Glitter In The Gutter was recorded in various studios over the summer in Millbrook, New York; North Hollywood, CA; and in Jesse’s native borough of Queens, New York (and was accompanied by a running blog over on Jesse’s MySpace). The album was recorded with members of Jesse’s touring band “The Heat” and also includes special guest performances by Bruce Springsteen, Jakob Dylan, Chris Shiflett of the Foo Fighters, Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age and long time pal Ryan Adams.

JoJo Pennebaker, son of legendary filmmaker D.A. Pennebaker (Bob Dylan, David Bowie, Jimi Hendrix) documented the making of Glitter on film and will be putting that together as a half-hour piece to coincide with the release of the record. [source]

  • I saw him perform Bastards of Young when he opened for Ryan Adams back in 2005 and I remember it being pretty damn good.

  • My friend’s & I used to follow D-Generation around back in the day. I still listen to my old CDs. I do have The Fine Art of Self Destruction but for some reason it never really grabbed me. I probably need to give it another chance. I love the title Glitter in the Gutter.

  • tina, I am not sure since I didn’t rip it, but I would guess somewhere in NYC since the Bowery is in Manhattan…?

  • thanks heather! i actually listened to the end and figured that out after i posted. i’m hearing rumors that jesse malin may be the ‘special guest’ at one of ryan adam’s three town hall gigs in december. that would be pretty cool.

  • Lucinda is about Lucinda Williams. Until very recently, she didn’t know about it..

  • “Black Haired Girl” is fantastic.
    I think this new record could very well rival even “The Fine Art..”

"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.
