Brian Fallon is the lead singer of New Jersey’s awesomeÂ The Gaslight Anthem. Brian Fallon is also the lead singer of his mellowed out side project (with his guitar tech Ian Perkins). I’m really shocked at how little press this album got from all the same outlets that usually gush over Gaslight. Anyway, that’s exactly why I’m so late to the game but you know I wouldn’t leave you guys without a heads up. If you have ever been down with Gaslight’s vibe but wanted an album that you could play without risk of lead-footing the gas pedal or singing along at inappropriate volumes then Elsie is your LP. It’s like Gaslight lite, if you will. Fallon called it something like “sleeping music” or “chilling music” or something. I just call it rock n roll. Whatever works really, although some of these jams like “Behold The Hurricane” and “Go Tell Everybody”Â definitelyÂ get a bit rowdy.
