July 24: The Gaslight Anthem, "Handwritten"

Anyone who doesn't feel like they have a modern rock 'n' roll band to love may not be listening to these New Jersey rockers, who crank out great album after great album of songs packed with grit and working-man storytelling from frontman Brian Fallon. First single "45" delivers just what we want and expect from the group, with an extra helping of punk force. -- Matt Pais
