Merge

Titus Andronicus is a band that I usually like. Not every song hits home with me. But they are interesting. And they have a rock opera lp that just came out. So kudos to them for over achieving. They made this video as a sort of teaser for the rock opera and I really really like it.

Hey! We’re posting songs again! Mikal Cronin put out MCIII earlier this week, and it’s a pretty great slab of guitar pop. He appears to have gotten the celebrity seal of approval from both Kristen Schaal (from the Daily Show/Last Man on Earth) and Kurt Braunohler (of jet skiing across the US fame) in his video for “Turn Around”. And if you need one more famous-dude endorsement to really commit to the song, Conan O’Brien seemed to really enjoy it when Cronin stopped by his show last week:

This new Twerps record is pretty damned good.  And you know what, I really love the band name.  Nice job band.  Merge Records has it up for pre-order here.

An extremely relevant SOTD today, as our band will be playing this upcoming Saturday, 9PM at Hambones in Lawrenceville. First show in a few months, so come help us shake off the dust and have a good time (read: buy us beer, or buy yourself enough beer that you’ll enjoy whatever show we wind up putting on). Hiss Golden Messenger’s Lateness of Dancers is out today on Merge Records.
