The Horrible Crowes – Sugar

This was the takeaway song of last night. It was playing between sets and it was good enough that you couldn’t help but notice it. It was a little bit of a challenge to find out who it was but with technology and friends, we figured out it was The Horrible Crowes.

The Horrible Crowes is Brian Fallon of The Gaslight Anthem and Ian Perkins. I don’t know how well known it is that I love The Gaslight Anthem but I do. So I guess it’s not much of a surprise that I loved The Horrible Crowes without even knowing the connection on the first listen. The Gaslight Anihem is known for being anthemic but lyrically strong. The lyrics are still there in “Sugar” but it is much more of a ballad. Yet, it’s still got that big sound. I don’t know, just give it a listen and tell me what you think.

Their debut album Elsie came out back in September. I’m a little sad I wasn’t aware of it back then but I’m enjoying my new discovery now. Join me.
