New Music Review: Titus Andronicus Covers The Killers

Apparently, late last night, the Glen Rock, NJ Indie-Punk outfit, Titus Andronicus, partied a little too hard, entered the studio and transformed The Killers “All These Things That I’ve Done,” a modern Glam-Rock hit, into a piece of basement slop with multiple coats of grit, grime, and sarcasm.

In the wee hours of the morning Patrick Stickles and company dropped its dirty rendition on the listening public, much to the delight of the group’s fans who have a kick out it thus far.

Stickle’s intentionally tone deaf performance draws laughter throughout the track from the axe-wielding Amy Kline, whose attempts at harmonization are continually thwarted.

On the back of the band’s renown sophomore full-length, The Monitor, a heavy, conceptual record that weaves Civil War-time imagery with 21st century themes of love and insecurity, Titus Andronicus’ fame has grown…it’s nice to see they can still unwind and not take themselves too seriously.
