Band: Jesse Malin
Album: Sunset Kids
Label: Wicked Cool Records / The Orchard
From the early days of hardcore in New York to all the punk rock and singer / Songwriter touring, it’s all been about survival an reinvention, about finding a way to get through. I wanted to make an open sounding record with the space to all these stories. I like to write about characters and people I meet along the way. The dreamers, schemers, hustlers, romantics, lovers, leavers and believers.
SUNSET KIDS first took shape at The Hollywood Bowl, when Jesse accepted Lucinda Williams’ invite to see her open what turned out to bet he final concert by Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers. During that same L.A. visit, the idea of Lucinda taking the producer’s chair on Jesse’s next record came about. After reflecting on his life while walking the streets of London, jamming riffs in an East Side basement, and writing songs in Florida hotel rooms while visiting his ailing father, the ambitious 14 song album was recorded on both coats between the two artists’ touring schedules.“Playing music is something I need to do. Singing under those hot lights every night ist rue exorcism. We get put together this pirate ship of characters and go around the world making trouble.
