Thursday

Albums listened to while forgetting it's a weekday and being slightly upset that the movie theater website falsely advertised an 11 am showing

Titus Andronicus' The Monitor
The Smiths' The Queen Is Dead
tUnE-yArDs' BiRd-BrAiNs
Sharon Van Etten's One Day (Single)

Can I at once proclaim my care for the first album of the day? The Monitor wreaks of rebellious intelligence and nasty debaucherysigns raised, fists ready, message shouted. It is a lengthy album, but each song keeps up uncorralled energy and scrabbling instrumentation, leaving you empowered but off-balance. Gosh it's so good.
