One of my favorites of the decade. I love the way he uses the Civil War as an analogue for how we battle ourselves and our feelings about where we come from. Great pick that I haven’t listened to in quite a while. I’m looking forward to digging into it again with fresh ears.

I predict that Thememan is not going to enjoy this one. Patrick Stickles very much has one of those voices that he doesn’t seem to like.

Listening now, enjoying it. It's upbeat and has tons going on, which is where it differs from artists like Dylan and Waits who don't have anything but an acoustic guitar to distract from their grating voices. I've listened to a little Titus Andronicus before and this reinforces my thoughts that they're parallel to The Hold Steady in the best ways. Also, I dig the pseudo Civil War theme, it adds that much more to it.

I stand corrected!

It’s funny that you compared them to the Hold Steady, because one of the interstitial voice-overs is actually Craig Finn, but I’ve never figured out which one.

Hah, that's a fun coincidence. I also get hints of the old ufck favorite, State Champion, in this one. I'll likely go back to this one in the future, good pick!

For you fans of both Titus Andronicus and the Hold Steady, here’s a free download of a split single they did where Titus Andronicus covers Craig Finn’s song No Future, and Craig Finn covers the Titus Andronicus song of the same name.

State Champion, damn man that brings back memories. I actually have the vinyl of their Stale Champagne album. Got it delivered from them in a folded over Bud Light 30 rack box . I'm going to have to throw that record on soon.

He does the one at the end of A Pot In Which to Piss.

Somewhat related, like 6-7 years ago I saw Stickles guest and sing lead on Cattle and the Creeping Things with The Hold Steady. That was fucking awesome.

Taking my listen now. So glad this was suggested, because I had not listened to it in far too long. It’s really an incredible album. The music is so ambitious, taking Punk attitude and aggression but refusing to play by the Punk rules, not being afraid to go for the longer run times, songs with multiple movements and the bagpipes. But my favorite thing about this album is how he uses the framework of the Civil War to examine our battles with our own pasts and how we feel about them. It’s genius, to the extent that it’s almost surprising that no one has done it before. Definitely one of the best albums of this decade.

Well, unless I’m mistaken or someone new wants it, I believe that brings us back to the top of the rotation, which would mean me. If there are no objections, I’ll post my pick during my lunch break today.

Finally got a chance to listen to last week's pick. Brilliant album, really liked it. This is art. I love the creativity.

Really liking this thread, finding a lot of great stuff that I definitely would never have heard otherwise.

Autolux- Future Perfect

I chose this album because I have always considered it to be one of the most criminally underrated records of the last decade. Autolux is a three piece band using the classic power-trio lineup. They play indie-alternative Rock that includes elements of Post-Punk, Hard Rock and a lot of Shoegaze. They were so good that they attracted the attention of T-Bone Burnett, who signed them to his label and produced this, their 2004 debut album. I fell in love with it when it came out, but it didn’t make many waves and was pretty quickly forgotten about. I think this a real shame, because the album is a powerhouse, propelled forward by some of the best drumming you’re ever likely to hear. I really hope you like it.

Just starting this one now, enjoying it. Not something I would've found on my own, which is always welcome.

This one has all the traits of your typical early-2000's 'rock' band, but then, just when you get comfortable, they hit you with that 'Stars' vibe. Really great pick, I also love how mellow this is....I didn't expect it.

Right on with that drumming. It starts off right in your face with some fantastic drums. I love the vibe on this album.

I don't think I'd go as far as calling it mellow, but I completely understand where you're coming from. The album has a heavy feeling overall to me but it's balanced pretty well throughout with some softer/mellow aspects.
