When they played SXSW last week, Titus Andronicus announced that they’d brought something extra with them: A CDR mixtape, limited to 200 copies, that collected a whole bunch of the band’s random rarities, demos, live tracks and covers. (Mine was copy #36.) Someone must’ve realized that this wasn’t the most efficient way to get new music out into the world, so they’ve posted the entire mixtape for free download on their mixtape. Titus Andronicus LLC Mixtape Vol 1 includes a ton of demos, outtakes, and early recordings, as well as covers of songs from bands like the Velvet Underground, the Replacments, Weezer, Television Personalities, and Thin Lizzy — the last of which was recorded live not even two weeks ago. You’ll also find a proper recording of new single “Upon Viewing Oregon’s Landscape With The Flood Of Detritus” on the tape. Download that song below and the whole tape here.
