Patrick Stickles, lead singer of the New Jersey’s own Titus Andronicus, has a very followable twitter account. He’s wicked forthcoming about opinions musical, political, and otherwise, insider band info (e.g. there’s a new Titus Andronicus album due out next year sometime), and best of all, he drops some tracks on you here and there. The latest is a cover of the Bruce Springsteen staple “Glory Days” with his band and Brooklyn cohorts The So So Glos.
This recording features new Titus Andronicus member Liam Betson on vocals doing a capable Boss impression, and the whole thing captures the spirit of the original, with just enough moxy and fidelity to make it sound like it wasn’t recorded at karaoke night. Check out the plucky demo at Titus Andronicus’ Soundcloud page.
