From collaborations with Bruce Springsteen and Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day, to his early writing in D Generation, Jesse Malin fuses evocative lyrics with music that cross genres. His newest effort, the Lucinda Williams produced ‘Sunset Kids,’ finds Jesse reimagining broad swaths of American musical textures- invoking Lou Reed, Neil Young and Paul Simon. ‘Sunset Kids’ began to take shape when Jesse accepted Lucinda’s invitation to see her open for what would be the last Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers concert. The album explores the bittersweet as well as topics more upbeat, with Jesse’s street-smart writing style acting as the thread weaving indie rock, folk and heartland Americana together.
One can hear ‘Sunset Kids’ as a natural progression of Malin’s previous work. D Generation charged onto the scene with downtown swagger while 'The Fine Art of Self-Destruction', his Ryan Adams’s produced first solo album, combined this toughness with heart-rending lyrics reminiscent of Steve Earle and Tom Waits. Subsequent work refine rock in the vein The Hold Steady and The Strokes while cultivating a personal lyrical approach a la Wilco or Elliot Smith. In Sunset Kids, the genres and influences gel and Jesse Malin steps assuredly into the role of street-savvy, roots-minded songster. AllMusic says Sunset Kids "ranks of one of Malin's best records" while Americana UK calls it "a triumph a record... among the best of Malin’s career and among the best of this year."
