The 5 Best Songs Of The Week

All of this week’s best songs boast a balls-to-the-wall letting go in their own respective ways. Some are aggressive, others are shy and muted, but none of these artists are afraid of asking themselves difficult questions. This is one of the most subtly cohesive lists we’ve had in awhile. Dive in. More »

Titus Andronicus – “Dimed Out”

There is a new Titus Andronicus song in the world, and it is awesome. “Dimed Out” arrives via Merge Records — signaling a label change from XL Recordings — and it’s will be followed by an album-as-rock-opera called The Most Lamentable Tragedy this July. This thing is exactly the kind of fist-pump howl-along powerhouse I… More »

Titus Andronicus Share “Stranded (On My Own),” Announce 7″ Series

Titus Andronicus spent much of the past week Twitter-hyping an online “press conference” they’d be conducting live on YouTube. The press conference turned out to be frontman Patrick Stickles talking for nearly two hours, showing off his favorite 7″ singles and explaining, in some detail, his interest in the number seven. (Titus have released seve… More »

Titus Andronicus’ Patrick Stickles Defends Lily Allen, Condemns Courtney Love

Titus Andronicus frontman Patrick Stickles is an intense and outspoken individual in person, as I found out when I wrote this feature about him. But there’s a distinct possibility that he’s even more intense and outspoken when he’s sitting at his phone or his laptop. He can be a weird Twitter follow, and in the… More »

Hear Patrick Stickles On Marc Maron’s WTF

As I learned up close and in person last year, Titus Andronicus frontman Patrick Stickles can be a prickly, challenging interview subject, but he’s also a fascinating and lofty conversationalist. As he’s proven time and again on his WTF podcast, comedian Marc Maron is one of our great interviewers, a man capable of drawing great… More »

Titus Andronicus Frontman Patrick Stickles Is Washed Up, And He Knows It

Patrick Stickles does not take compliments well. That’s not to say he’s rude or anything. When fans approach the Titus Andronicus frontman outside the Charlottesville, Virginia bar where they’ll play tonight, he’s perfectly gracious. But when they walk away, he wonders about those compliments, about what they might mean. More »

Deconstructing: The End Of Maxwell’s And Leaving New Jersey

Doors opened at 8, but really a few minutes past, the other week in Hoboken, and the audience — mostly young, mostly male — drifted into Maxwell’s discordantly, with the unsure babble of those anticipating a blowout but gearing up for a funeral.

Maxwell’s has been tough to talk about these days, to… More »

Titus Andronicus – “I Love It” (Icona Pop Cover)

Titus Andronicus are packing in the curiosities this week. Frontman Patrick Stickles is now selling his services as a singing telegram — although, only in NYC, Long Island, NJ; whatever Westchester did to you, Stickles, we’re sorry — and the band has now released a of Icona Pop’s ever-present breakout single “I Love It.” Under… More »

Titus Andronicus – “Still Life With Hot Deuce And Silver Platter” Video

Local Business, the album that Titus Andronicus released last year, was a bit of a retrenchment, a return to the no-frills dude-rock that the band had been making before the all-out conceptual grandeur of The Monitor. It wasn’t The Monitor, so people got disappointed. But it remains a pretty kickass rock record, and the new… More »

Watch Patrick Stickles & Diarrhea Planet Cover “Born To Run”

Earlier this month, the charmingly monikered triple-guitar Nashville punk monster Diarrhea Planet played at the Brooklyn DIY venue Shea Stadium. And at the show, their friend and frequent tourmate Patrick Stickles, frontman of Titus Andronicus, joined them onstage to cover Bruce Springsteen’s immortal “Born To Run,” a song Stickles has already referenced in song. “Bor… More »

Patrick Stickles (Titus Andronicus) – “Hey Tonight” (Free Energy Cover) (Stereogum Premiere)

Three years ago at SXSW, I saw Titus Andronicus and Free Energy play back-to-back. Both bands wrecked shop, but my favorite thing about the show was the way Titus stayed to watch Free Energy, taking over the front row and dancing hard and singing along to everything. Both bands toured together that summer, and whe… More »

Deconstructing: Titus Andronicus And The Possibility Of Punk Patriotism

On one wall in my apartment, I have two things hanging: On the left is a large American flag that covers most of the wall, so big it took two people to hang up when we moved in. To the right of the flag is a notably less patriotic, more anti-establishment emblem: a poster I… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

Nice job this week, video directors! There were definitely too many good videos this week. I don’t know how I didn’t manage to find room for the A Place To Bury Strangers video where toys melt and burn in extremely satisfying ways, or the Wild Nothing video where Michelle Williams, despite not really doing anything,… More »

Titus Andronicus – “In A Big City” Video

The video for “In A Big City,” the rousing lead single from Titus Andronicus’s not-The Monitor-but-still-great new album Local Business, depicts frontman Patrick Stickles as a scowling solitary figure, fighting through crowds and crossing desolate urban-blight Jersey landscapes so that he can arrive on the Hudson River’s banks and stare down the promised land o… More »

Stream Titus Andronicus Local Business

Local Business, the third album from conceptual and ambitious Jersey punks Titus Andronicus, might not quite reach the dizzy heights of The Monitor, their last album, but it’s already starting to sound like one of the year’s most durable rock records, and it’s probably something that you need in your life. We’ve already heard a… More »
