The Gaslight Anthem frontman Brian Fallon discusses his upcoming solo album, why your favorite musician probably still has a day job and his frustration with some aspects of music criticism. Fallon also talks about his love of Tom Waits, why signifiers like "popist" and "rockist" are so ridiculous and why he decided to strike out on his own after spending the past decade with Gaslight. "It's like we all stuck our hands up in the and asked, 'Does anyone have any Gaslight Anthem songs?' and everyone was like, 'No, I'm kind of tapped out on the Gaslight Anthem right now," he explains. "So we collectively were like: It's Thanksgiving dinner, I'm full, I'm going to go home for a minute." Luckily in the meantime we've got his album Painkillers to tide us over, a collection of Americana-tinged songs that are less of a solo project as they are the next chapter in Fallon's already impressive musical career.

Haim bassist Este Haim came by Going Off Track to discuss how she grew up listening to emo icons like Taking Back Sunday and Brand New. She also talks about her short-lived career as a waitress, the impact that Say Anything's ...Is A Real Boy had on her life and the merits of pop music. "The thing about pop music now that I love  is that there are really no rules and it's borrowing from so many different genres and eras," she explains. "For me, the music I want to make has a pop sensibility—but I want it to sound classic but not dated." We also discuss our mutual love of Don Henley and Phil Collins, why Haim didn't rush into putting out their sophomore album and the time Este cried at a Dinosaur Jr. concert. Now that's emo.

Marky Capicotto, founder of the clothing line Glamour Kills, stopped by Going Off Track to discuss how he got started designing his own merchandise, the secret to dealing with haters and why he decided to migrate back Upstate after living in Manhattan. We also talk about his collaboration with bands ranging from All Time Low to Hot Water Music, how he deals with people who rip-off his aesthetic and the nature of criticism when it comes to the arts. "I think there's a stigma that it's a lot easier to make T-shirts than it is to make records and I think of us more as a record label, we're not selling albums but we're selling the culture," Capicotto explains when asked how Glamour Kills has managed to weather the Warped Tour and continue to thrive after a decade of existence. "That's why it's important to have brand integrity and be a part of something." We couldn't agree more.
