Gaslight Anthem: iTunes Session

This newly released EP is their last with indie label, Side One Dummy Records. The band recently announced that they'll be moving to Mercury/Island Def Jam Records. Let's hope they maintain their integrity and not sell themselves out. This seven-song set was recorded for an iTunes-only release, and contains a couple of fantastic rock covers, Baba O'Riley, Refugee, State Of Love And Trust and the Animals' House Of The Rising Sun (which I think is the best). Also included are three of their own, a slowed-down Boxer and a new one called Fathers And Sons, and the highly underrated The Navesink Banks. Brian Fallon's voice has never sounded better, and so has the band. If all goes well, we'll be getting the new Gaslight record next summer!
