The Cars & The Gaslight Anthem

Episode 102

Aaron looks at music from a New Jersey group that, after five well-received albums of sincere and genuine songwriting, opted to go on indefinite hiatus in 2015 and Brent spotlights an influential Boston band with a debut album that stayed on the Billboard album charts for over a year.

Achieving critical acclaim with albums like The ’59 Sound before deciding to step away to work on other projects, Aaron picks out three songs from Brian Fallon and The Gaslight Anthem.

With a career that saw their first five albums attain platinum status and thirteen Top 40 singles, Brent highlights three from Ric Ocasek and The Cars.
