Blind Tiger Record Club’s Rock Record of the Month - Brian Fallon - Sleepwalkers: Many of us at B.T.R.C. have always been fans of The Gaslight Anthem.  They have bounced around the indie scene for years.  While getting some critical buzz, they never seemed to really break through as a commercial success even though they consistently skated around the edges.For example, in 2008, Gaslight became the first band ever to be featured on the cover of Kerrang! even though the magazine had NEVER written about them.  That was the album The '59 Sound and in many ways, this was a break...

This album only dropped January 19th, but we have a feeling that...
