Included are songs by Wye Oak, Wunder Wunder, Ashrae Fax, Titus Andronicus, The Rosebuds, Ice Cream Cathedral, Ought, Childhood, Slow Club, Boxed In, Coldplay remixed by AlunaGeorge, Anand Wilder (of Yeasyer), and more.

An Obelisk is sincere Titus Andronicus, all the way through. The paean punk specialists leave nothing untouched, ringing the inspiration bell with floored rock ‘n’ roll and smart stories. More

Feb 26, 2018

Now that they’ve got a concept album about the Civil War and a rock opera about depression under their belts, New Jersey punk heroes Titus Andronicus are back with…a single-disc, seven-track album of straight rock ‘n’ roll. A Productive Cough sees Patrick Stickles giving in to his ever-present classic rock soul. More

Oct 25, 2012

Titus Andronicus has always had ambitions exceeding that of most punk bands. They’re just as likely to make an album about a Civil War ship (The Monitor) as they are to write a song featuring a poop joke (the amazingly-titled “Still Life with Hot Deuce on Silver Platter”). Their music, at once shambling and epic, serves these dual purposes perfectly, and their first two albums were equal parts hilarious, angry, and soaring. More

Day one of Coachella 2011 displayed several improvements over last year. There was less of a crowd (even though it was sold out this year, they put more of a limitation on how many tickets could be sold). Security was tighter and parking seemed less of a pain. And it even seemed as though the Mojave and Gobi tents were a little bigger this year and able to accommodate more fans. Highlights of the day included two bands from down under and some soft rockers; where-as two notable artists stormed off the stage. More

Even if The Who are the only non-prog rock band that ever really pulled off what could truly be called concept albums, it’s been entertaining over the years hearing musicians hang songs around a theme. Usually. With The Monitor, Titus Andronicus co-opts the Civil War for use as a metaphor in a group of songs about someone who leaves New Jersey for Boston and is unhappy with his decision. More
