The young punks in Titus Andronicus are wise beyond their years: Singer Patrick Stickles and his band craft meaningful, epic records with an abundance of cultural references and even more bite.

In punky Brooklyn trio Slothrust, three jazz musicians celebrate loudness with furiously danceable tracks (and the odd love song).
