I was just driving around and the new single from their new album came on the radio. It's the title track from the album American Slang, which the radio guy told me is coming out on June 15th. I really liked the song and I like these guys and there you have it.

haha

the new song is pretty good. i will give them that. kind of rips off "i'da called you woody, joe" at times, but still not a bad track at all. i grow tired of the world-weary punk rock/springsteen-wannabe image that seems to stand out above the decent yet same-sounding songs. sink or swim was good, 59 sound even better. but i know what happens next. i eagerly get all amped up for a new album, the clean guitar riff running through the lead single psyching me up for something that sounds slightly different and a little new, only to find it's the only variation on a theme all 10 tracks are going to wear out, one that isn't too far from the album that got them more exposure. i'll definitely be buying it, and i'll like it to a degree, but it won't be as awesome as the last album. you could say i've got "great expectations" that i know this will fall short of, and that's causing my dislike.

either that, or i've just listened to the 59 sound too much and kind of burnt myself out a bit.

so much for waiting on that rant.

The new album has hit the internet... What do you think of it? I'd say it's certainly on par with the modern classic "The '59 Sound" and "Senor and The Queen" EP and better than "Sink or Swim".

There's definitely a progression in their sound that's found throughout the album. The only song I don't like is "Stay Lucky", which is a momentum killer after the opening title track "American Slang." But 9 great songs out of 10 is quite impressive.

That show was awesome! As this band continues to grow, I doubt we'll get many more chances to see a cool ass gig like that one (let's not talk about the shit-hole venue).

I'm really digging American Slang. Right now only 1 radio station plays it, but it's enough to get me pumped about the new album. I've not heard it yet. Brian said something about the album being leaked online at that gig. I can't remember exactly...

My favorite song off '59 Sound is actually "Cassanova, Baby!" Which, including the borrowed lyric, has a Sam Cooke feel to it, which I didn't realize until the night of the acoustic gig. At the gig, Sam Cooke was being played before his set. One of the guys near us went on and on about Sam, and how he's apparently one of Brian's influences. No wonder I love that song! I grew up listening to Sam's stuff all my life (mom was a fan girl.)

I'm definitely looking forward to the new album, and the release party next month.

for the new CD to hit stores and the CD release show this week!

i've been listening online (First Listen: The Gaslight Anthem, 'American Slang' : NPR) and i'm really enjoying the unique sound of The Queen of Lower Chelsea. Boxer is just awesome and Brian is channeling Springsteen in Old Haunts i think!

good stuff!
