Behold The Hurricane by The Horrible Crows

Brian Fallon of the founding members of one of my favorite bands The Gaslight Anthem started a side-project last year forming the band The Horrible Crows.

Fallon and Ian Perkins released the album Elsie which has echos of the The Gaslight Anthem.  Like his work with The Gaslight Anthem, Fallon's work is a combination fo punk and Springsteen-like storytelling, which is clearly evident in the lead sing "Behold The Hurricane."

While the story of this song is sad, there is a triumphant glory in the music that allows you to comprehend the darkness of the lyrics with a unique perspective.  This song isn't suppose to depress, instead it makes you consider yourself and the choices in your life.  Fallon, triumphs again pushing rock music into places that few musicians date to approach.
