Released in April 2010, Love It to Life is another broken bottle thrown against Jesse Malin’s wall, with rock ‘n’ roll ramble, a gang of fellow travelers (Ryan Adams, etc.), and Malin’s eternal flame of redemptive angst all glittering in the shards of broken green and brown. For her part, Juliana Hatfield hasn’t once let age change her inviting vocal beguile, a trait she put to use once again on last year’s entirely self-made Peace and Love.
