Brian Fallon, the frontman of New Jersey rockers the Gaslight Anthem, teamed up with his old friend Ian Perkins to form the Horrible Crowes, a new outlet for the singer's introspective yet bombastic music. "Behold the Hurricane," a track from the band's forthcoming debut Elsie, is a richly arranged rocker that approaches the soaring intensity of Bruce Springsteen and the cinematic flair of Greg Dulli's music with the Afghan Whigs and the Twilight Singers. Elsie won't be in shops until September 16th, but you can stream the song now.

“Madame George”

Van Morrison | 1968

One of the first stream-of-consciousness epics to make it onto a Van Morrison record, his drawn-out farewell to the eccentric "Madame George" lasted nearly 10 minutes, combining ingredients from folk, jazz and classical music. The character that gave the song its title provoked speculation that it was about a drag queen, though Morrison denied this in Rolling Stone. "If you see it as a male or a female or whatever, it's your trip," he remarked. "I see it as a ... a Swiss cheese sandwich. Something like that."
