Album Notes By Alex Mindt Author of "Male Of The Species"
It’s the truth, straight up, gutsy, gorgeous, real, and alive. That’s what you hear in Malone’s sweet and soulful voice. It’s about the lost and lonely, the forgotten and the unforgettable. It’s the haunting voice carrying over the Irish glen, the intimate voice on your living room couch, the yearning voice on the banks of the river, the buoyant voice on your back porch. These songs are America––diverse, full-bodied, nuanced, touching, memorable and visionary. But really, they’re just songs you want to listen to again and again, songs you find yourself humming in the morning while making coffee, or when doing the dishes in the evening. From “Factory Girls” to “Who Knows” to “Sallie Anne”, they’re all great, great songs. Do yourself a favor, buy this record, open a bottle of wine, and enjoy.
