Fresh off the heels of New York Before The War (March 2015), Jesse Malin returns with his latest album, Outsiders, due out October 9th on One Little Indian / Velvet Elk Records.

Born from late night recording sessions in the Pennsylvania woods with producer Don DiLego, far from any expectations, this new record presents Jesse Malin in his rawest form yet. Malin describes Outsiders as "a record built out of optimism and disgust - one for the leavers, the believers, the hustlers and the chicken hawks who could never catch us."

Malin began playing live the age of twelve years old in the seminal hardcore band Heart Attack, after which Jesse and his childhood pals formed the rock and roll band D Generation and released three albums, touring the globe several times over before parting ways. Following several in-between bridge bands, Jesse Malin embarked on a solo career and has released six critically acclaimed records, starting with 2002's The Fine Art of Self Destruction, produced by Ryan Adams. Followed by 2004's The Heat, 2007's Glitter in the Gutter and 2010's Love It To Life, Jesse Malin has been nominated for the Shortlist Music Prize, received four star reviews in Rolling Stone, Uncut and more, and collaborated with artists such as Bruce Springsteen, Green Day, and Wayne Kramer along the way.

Don DiLego and The Touristas
"New York City's emerging folk-twang songsmith, Don DiLego, is alt-country's next poster boy." Rolling Stone

"Don DiLego is a storyteller who invokes vivid imagery in the vein of Johnny Cash." Northeast Performer Magazine

" ....rustic, accessible ballad that would sound right blaring from a pickup truck on a darkening highway....DiLego is cut from the same cloth as performers like Wilco and the Avett Brothers € his songs take country ballads one step beyond their obvious conclusion, yielding a genre-bending hybrid of indie rock and country." NY Indie Music Examiner.com

DiLego brings an alt-country sensibility to an urban landscape: "The street lights are breathing hard, and the crowd shakes far beneath my feet, he sings in a soaring chorus that recalls Dion as much as Jackson Browne. That fusion of country lilt and old-fashioned rock muscle, along with lyrics that don't settle for the usual tropes, make Western and Atlantic‚ a keeper. Peter Chianca, Gatehouse News

""From the EP's opener, the slide guitar driven Midnight Train to the final track, the intimate Carry On he touches base with Jeff Tweedy and Howe Gelb. Television Sun starts like an outtake of Neil Young's Harvest Moon before evolving into a road movie theme song that could have been written by Steve Earle." Hans Werksman, Here Comes The Flood

"The Holiday"€ has a lovely melody reminiscent of gospel-soul, but features a weeping steel guitar and harmonica, while the ghostly piano, distorted guitars, and Beach Boys harmonies of €œ"Lonely Couples" would have fit beautifully on Wilco's Summerteeth. " - David Lifton, Popdose

"The resulting "what-you-hear-is what-you-get sort of affair is a solid product that both mesmerizes and enlightens." Joe Ross, CD Insight

"From lonesome heartachers to smart, sparkly, alt-country pop, Don DiLego's brand of sometimes subdued, sometimes punchy twang-rock finds it's true north on "Photographs of 1971." Volume up!" Kate Bradley, XM Radio

"The disc recaptures the rhythm of 70's movies and photographs, as well as DiLego's own distinct take on alt-country." David Dye / The World Cafe, WXPN
Richard Bacchus
RICHARD BACCHUS & THE LUCKIEST GIRLS Former D Generation guitarist Richard Bacchus has a healthy respect for the Bowery-bred bite of old-school punk. His ringing Thunders-style guitar has a patina of grime, and the songs have a chunky power that recalls hooky, hard-rock mavens Cheap Trick.
