The Gaslight Anthem is a superb band. Yeah, they get compared to Bruce Springsteen, like, ALL the time- because Brian Fallon’s voice has a degree of raspiness and their songs are typically about young(ish) love and sort of finding yourself- oh, and they’re both from Jersey- but I could think of worse comparisons. I don’t think there is another rock n’ roll band out there right now like them. For those unfamiliar with the band, I’d suggest starting with their second album, The ’59 Sound. Here’s the first track off that album:
Brian has like, two other side projects which are just as fantastic as GA’s music. Everything this man touches musically is just golden.
