Listen: Titus Andronicus' New Album, Local Business

"Okay, I think now that we've established everything is inherently worthless, and there's nothing in the universe with any kind of objective purpose."

I cannot think of a line that better encapsulates what Titus Andronicus is all about. Lyrically, "Local Business" has a lot of similar themes to their previous albums (minus the whole civil war plot of course) but musically this is a much different record from their brilliant sophomore album "The Monitor". "Local Business" has substituted many of the overly dramatic (in the best way possible) elements from "The Monitor" for a more straight forward and raw rock n' roll record. Follow the link below to stream the album in its entirety over at NPR's First Listen.
