Titus Andronicus

“The Monitor”

Coming out of nowhere is a New Jersey lo-fi (ish) punk band with a long story-arc infusing modern-day sentiments on “home” with civil war-era ideas and struggles.  Sure, an album like this seems like it appeals to only a narrow group of civil war buffs that also are well-versed in pop-culture references, but I dare you to not fall in love with this package of ten songs.

Grade: A-

Favorite Track: A More Perfect Union

Second Favorite: No Future Part Three: Escape From No Future
