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.

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.
