POZ Review: The Gaslight Anthem - Get Hurt

Rock and roll. There slithers that term that crunches with nostalgia or sours like a Warhead candy. It’s been used before (and this reviewer is one of those guilty parties), but that’s because somewhere in the lonesome crowded west of our culture it exists as spirit and hope rather than an actual signifier of popular music. New Brunswick, New Jersey natives The Gaslight Anthem have been ridiculed at times for waving that banner, and were even unfairly called the new Nickelback by one “unbiased” publication. It’s a statement about how far guitar rock has come unhinged from the mainstream culture often bringing up a bad taste when there is a wealth of great rock music to be discovered and appreciated.
 
On their fifth studio album, Get Hurt, The Gaslight Anthem aimed for the fences to rid themselves of all ridicule and some unfair identities. Their rock and punk roots are often overlooked in favor of discussing how much they lean on a sound akin to fellow Jersey boy Bruce Springsteen’s. This time out everything is feverishly intense, often brandishing heavy rock fingers that take them as far away as possible from what their fans probably expect. The result is probably their most expansive effort to date.
 
Lead singer Brian Fallon is both humbled and dogged by the constant comparisons to the pride of the Garden State, and while Get Hurt does a damn good job of moving away from that it’s not entirely avoidable. It can’t be helped when Fallon’s rugged and whiskey soaked voice features the reserved small town woes and rebel working boy shouts of the Boss but this time out much like on 2012’s Handwritten, he channels his Horrible Crowes’ style singing. Soundwise, they have moved from the dingy bars to the arenas offering blistering tracks that are unlike anything they have dared to do before. Mike Crossey is behind the board producing this time out, an odd choice for the band considering his precedent for delivering high-gloss style to acts like Arctic Monkeys and the 1975.

POZ Discussion: Most Anticipated August Releases

by Zack Zarrillo - Jul 30, 2014

August is nearly here, and we’re continuing 2014 with a jam-packed month of releases that PropertyOfZack team members couldn’t be more stoked to hear. In today’s new Discussion, we’re highlighting our personal Most Anticipated August Releases. Check out our list below and feel free to reblog with what you’re looking forward to as well!

Spoon - They Want My Soul (08/05)
The latter half of 2014 will see many indie rock stables return after going radio silent for what seemed like forever, and by forever I mean four or five years, an eternity in current music. One of those is indie rock icons Spoon, who will release their eighth studio album, They Want My Soul, at the beginning of a jam packed August. After 2010’s Transference the Austin, Texas outfit was exhausted and there was doubt if they would return in a few years’ time. After pursuing several solo projects which included singer Britt Daniels supergroup Divine Fits, they returned to the studio reenergized and ready to release another helping of riff heavy coolness on the music world. From some of the already released tracks such as the thumping and snarling “The Rent I Pay” this is business as usual Spoon, but that is always welcomed. No one makes a groove strut like Britt Daniels and company and what this hot summer needs more than anything is some laid back, gnarly indie anthems to march into the fall season. - Jason Stives

The Gaslight Anthem - Get Hurt (08/12)
The Gaslight Anthem has a thing for releasing a new album every two years, which is probably the smartest thing a band can do. Obviously, The ’59 Sound was a huge breakthrough, but American Slang and Handwritten were both albums that showed development and maturity within the band- not always what fans want.

The band is dropping Get Hurt on August 12, and have already released a video for the title track to mixed reviews. The Gaslight Anthem has always been a really feel-good, anthemic (surprise, surprise) kind of band, and the newer tracks stay true to this, yet have a new energy- more laid back, slowed down.

I’ve yet to hear the entire album, but I am really looking forward to what this band is bringing to the table after seeing them perform at Shaky Knees Fest in May. I loved Handwritten, and hope the guys can serve up all the usual happy feels with Get Hurt. - Caitlin DeWeese

POZ Discussion: Essential Summer Listening

by Zack Zarrillo - Jul 28, 2014

image

It’s August already, but we’re going to try to hang onto summer for as long as we call. To celebrate PropertyOfZack’s Tank Top Season we’re launching a new Essential Summer Listening Discussion filled with TeamPOZ’s favorite albums for this season. Check out our guide, listen along, and feel free to reblog with your favorite spring records!

The Hotelier - Home Like NoPlace There Is
I don’t think I would typically consider an album like The Hotelier’s Home Like NoPlace There Is as an Essential Summer Listening record, but it’s the majority of what I’ve actually been listening to this summer. So here we are, then. I tend to go on a lot of walks to detach myself from Tumblr and Twitter after working on the internet all day to try to make things that will turn into memes for youngsters.

While on those walks, I’ve found Home Like NoPlace There Is cuts through the cooler-at-night summer air and packs and even more special punch than it does in the colder months of winter that I first experienced when the glorious album came out. - Zack Zarrillo

The Gaslight Anthem - The ’59 Sound
Some records demand to be played while driving down the thruway, windows down, volume cranked, and arms stretched out like you’re flying. I don’t know if that necessarily makes those records summer albums, but to me it does and The Gaslight Anthem’s The ’59 Sound is the definitive summer album in my book. Brian Fallon’s
obsession with Americana and blue-collar living runs through every vein of The ’59 Sound and these “Every-Man” ideals strike a certain chord in my heart that reminds me of naïve summers spent wasting gas and sleeping on more floors than I could care to count.
