The Gaslight Anthem Evolves
Get Hurt is the new album from the New Jersey band Gaslight Anthem. The record is the band’s first album of new material in two years and represents a shift in the band’s direction. Unlike previous records such as American Slang the album does not have as strong a unifying lyrical theme, nor does it rely as heavily on stadium rock mannerisms heard on those earlier records. We’ll hear selections from that as well as from No Code, the 1996 album from Pearl Jam which was a departure for that Seattle band.

Brian Fallon’s band loses the Americana but keeps the lovelorn anthems
Singer Brian Fallon’s revelation that the Gaslight Anthem’s new musical direction was instigated by the 1975 set alarm bells ringing. Would the band known for its greasy heartland rock trade burly riffs for shiny guitar pop? Thankfully not. Rather than swiping the 1975’s style, they enlisted their producer, Mike Crossey, whose CV also boasts the meatier likes of Foals and Arctic Monkeys.
For all Fallon’s talk of a massive switch-up, his band’s fifth album doesn’t shift too much from their usual lovelorn, jagged melodies. That said, opener ‘Stay Vicious’ is as brutal as they have ever dared be. “I feel just a like a stranger / I feel just like a murderer,” growls Fallon, like he’s been gargling broken beer bottles. Here, he briefly recaptures the rawness of their 2007 debut Sink Or Swim, before the song slides into a delicate twinkle.
