New Titus Andronicus: A More Perfect Union
With their upcoming second album The Monitor release only a week away, and despite the album having been leaked a while ago, Titus Andronicus have released their second song from the album, the epic 7-minute album opener “A More Perfect Union”. I was a bit worried when I heard about how long the tracks would be on the album not because Titus Andronicus can’t write a good long song, but if it would work at for an entire album, a concept album at that. Well if this is any indication, it will not only work, but will be great. After a cool, old sampled speech, the band dives into an epic and depressing ode to going on even when you have no idea where your going, a la Bruce Springsteen through an indie rock filter. It’s just awesome and the multiple guitar solos just make it sweeter.
