Titus Andronicus - LLC Mixtape Vol. 1

The most beloved punk band of the past couple years just blessed us with a wealth of material from all over their career. Titus Andronicus frontman Patrick Stickles posted this mixtape recently, and it's a must-have for fans of the band. There are some outtakes and demos from 2010's landmark The Monitor, as well as a ton of unreleased covers and earlier stuff. The covers are great and diverse, with Weezer, Spider Bags, The Velvet Underground, and even the Hot Pockets theme song being touched upon. The highlight is easily the band's new song, "Upon Viewing Oregon's Landscape With the Flood of Detritus." It's awesome and should be on an upcoming split 7' between Titus Andronicus and recent tourmates (and awfully named) Diarrhea Planet. Listen to the tape at Tumblr.
