Titus Andronicus



I'm in class so I will try and make it brief. Titus Andronicus are one of the best punk bands out today. I feel terrible that we don't cover them more than we should. But I feel as if we did post about them they would get 10 responses where as a a shitty pop punk band will get 100 responses. Any who, Their latest album The Monitor is a modern punk classic based off of the U.S. Civil War. If that isn't enough to gain your attention I don't know what will. Sophomore slump doesn't exist for these Jersey boys. They have yet to default in the music world and continue to make a name for themselves. If I could recommend one album for this week, it would be The Monitor. Why listen to a bunch of imitators when you have a pioneer right in front of you?
