The Kissing Stage
Please note: MP3s are only kept online for a short time, and if this entry is from more than a couple of weeks ago, the music probably won't be available to download any more.
In reality, this song was probably named after the band, but I prefer to imagine that the band was named in tribute to the shirtless, jangle-barking that you're hearing now. Titus Andronicus has made, literally, a hissy fit. Levels grind against the peak like a face into a ceiling fan, and once every trick has come to light, it starts double-time head-long at the rear wall, and the band is named posthumously, in honour. I wish I were named after the best thing I've ever done. I guess my name would be Finished High School. [MySpace]
And indeed, we fall off the jagged carpet edge of the last song into this awkward and angular Gift, taking its odd form like water. It's like the Lou Reed version of what Sean was talking about with The Underpainting, but it likes screeching more than timing, feedback more than food. I know you'll listen a second time, I know I will a 14th, 15th... [Buy]Posted by Dan at April 3, 2007 5:26 AM

I like you, Dan.Posted by Danica at April 3, 2007 1:59 PM
Holy yes, indeed. I have heard this song a hundred times, on records and in person and in my head walking down the street, and it never ever gets old. I hope it never does.
