Spend 13 Minutes And 17 Seconds With Titus Andronicus

Patrick Stickles & Co. work up an honest NJ sweat in this performance of The Monitor closer “The Battle Of Hampton Roads.” The clip was directed by Daniel Ryan for For No One. A must see for beard fans. More »

Titus Andronicus & Free Energy Cover That Springsteen Song Vampire Weekend Covered A Few Weeks Ago

The tourmates performed “I’m Goin’ Down” at the Earl in Atlanta last week, in direct violation of Vampire Weekend’s multiple takes on the same Springsteen track. Truth is, Free Energy and Titus Andronicus do a better job locating the joyous, unbuttoned spirit of the live original. More »

FYF Fest 2010 In Photos

This past weekend L.A. hosted the heavily (and according to various reports, perhaps overly) attended Fuck Yeah Festival. Great lineup, though apparently not the most easily navigated festival experience, according to our forces on the ground. We sent photographers Graeme Flegenheimer and Patrick Collier, who suffered through $4 water bottle prices and severe crowding to… More »

Titus Andronicus Bring “A More Perfect Union” To Fallon

Last night Patrick Stickles & Co. gave the awkward Jimmy Fallon audience something to dance for with a suitably shaggy, anthemic rendition of the abridged take on The Monitor’s “A More Perfect Union.”… More »

Pitchfork Music Festival 2010: Saturday Recap

A lot of times I compare live performances to how that band sounds on their album. At Pitchfork Festival, Saturday was really about how artists worked with the big crowd and the daytime heat (the latter was big factor yesterday as well). Delorean, for example, sounded great, but their early set could only get a… More »

Pitchfork Music Festival 2010: Friday Recap

Amrit and I saw Inception just before the start of this year’s Pitchfork Festival, so you have to read this post with the understanding that the first day may have been a dream, or maybe you are in a dream reading the review, or maybe this is a shared dream (deep). So it was a… More »

Titus Andronicus & The Babies Cover “The Sweater Song”

Late last week in Philadelphia, Titus Andronicus and Vivian Girls’ Cassie Ramone gave the Barbary a spirited cover of Weezer’s beloved “Undone – The Sweater Song.” Ramone was there because the Babies, her project with Woods’ Kevin Morby, opened. Titus main man Patrick Stickles nails and ably improvises the guitar solo because he loves Weezer. More »

Titus Andronicus – “A More Perfect Union” Video

One of The Monitor’s best tracks is its raucous opener “A More Perfect Union,” a song best experienced bleeding into “Titus Andronicus Forever”’s “the enemy is everywhere.” This Claire Carré-directed video uses a severely edited version of the track (we go from 7:10 to 3:34), but I ended up not missing the extra minutes too… More »

SXSW 2010: Wednesday In Photos

Here’s a tip if you’re going to one of these industry festival type things: If IAMSOUND is having a party, you should attend that party. Just like this past CMJ, the L.A.-based imprint owned their night, pulling together an eclectic lineup that showcased the right bands, all having a moment: Scott already posted some videoMore »

Stream Titus Andronicus’ The Monitor

Yesterday we suggested The Montitor’s opener “A More Perfect Union” was best experienced with a full bleed into the following track “Titus Andronicus Forever.” Experience that and other overlaps at MySpace, where you’ll find the NJ crew’s sophomore collection streaming in all its ragged glory.

Titus Andronicus – “A More Perfect Union”

I tried to like The Airing Of Grievances because New Jersey dudes with big beards/bookshelves are close to my heart (and mirror), but I couldn’t always get past the nagging Bright Eyes moments. A common enough comment, yeah, and not at all unfounded. That said, I find myself listening to Titus Andronicus’s second album, the… More »

Titus Andronicus Not Fans Of Vice Halloween Party

Titus frontman Patrick Stickles was forcibly ejected because of his costume, but not before being put-off by the coke-snorting American Apparel-style “assholery on display.” He got back in in time to perform (“I really needed the money”). This is his story. More »

CMJ ’09: Weekend In Photos

One last gargantuan batch of photos from an exhausting, exhaustive week of NYC showgoing. On Friday Jessica Amaya joined us at Doveman’s record release party at the Elevated Hole, a Chelsea loft owned by the Yale English Dept. chair Michael Warner. The room was a perfect foil for Doveman’s candlelit Conformist material, along with guest… More »

New Titus Andronicus Video – “Upon Viewing Brueghel’s ‘Landscape With The Fall Of Icarus'”

Titus Andronicus, New Jersey, Shakespeare, and the bearded crowd’s answer to Bright Eyes, turn in an energetic black and white performance video for longtime signature song “Upon Viewing Brueghel’s ‘Landscape With The Fall Of Icarus.'” The title’s weighty, yes, and Patrick Stickles makes deep-dude eyes (in the accompanying thumbnail, he’s clearly watching those melting wing… More »

The Wrens @ Bowery Ballroom, NYC 3/13/09

Beloved online music radio station KEXP.org took over Bowery Friday night to celebrate one year of co-broadcasting terrestrially at 91.5FM and raise some funds, and you know, respect for the momentousness of that occasion and all, but for most that snapped up tickets to the sold-out show, the evening had a different celebratory center of… More »

Titus Andronicus/No Age @ Santo’s Party House, NYC 11/9/08

Last night we finally hit Andrew W.K.’s recently opened venue. Nice space, clearly designed with acoustics in mind — huge speaker blocks above the side bar, tweeters suspended over the floor for sound to surround — although you couldn’t say the same for sight (the poles that dot the space are good for advertising, not… More »

The McCarren Pool Parties Say Goodbye With Yo La Tengo

And that was that. Yesterday was the last McCarren Pool Party. The city’s gone and had the bright idea to fill the pool with — get this — water instead of hipsters (imagine that), bringing a halt to what quickly became a favorite NYC venue for summer music. The Pool’s life as a staging ground… More »

Artist To Watch: Pieter Bruegel

Earlier today Henry Darger got a mention in relation to Vivian Girls and Fucked Up, but maybe this year’s true crossover artist is 16th-century Flemish painter Pieter Bruegel, whose work adorns Fleet Foxes’ debut full length and gets a shout out in Titus Andronicus’ “Upon Viewing Bruegel’s ‘Landscape With the Fall of Icarus’.” Read more… More »
