New music: Morning Benders + Titus Andronicus

Bridging the gaps between live audio/video/reviews, which will the be the primary focus of the site, visible voice will also feature music news, free mp3s and general content about what we're listening to, reading or watching. 

Next Tuesday (3/9) is a big week for new album releases - but there are two in particular that we're particularly looking forward to.  As luck would have it, you can listen to both of them in their entirety now, free of charge.

Titus Andronicus - The Monitor

2008's The Airing of Grievances was a boozy, raucous album of bar band rock with literary references and surprisingly deft songwriting.   The Monitor, apparently a loose concept album based on the Civil War, gives TA a chance (excuse?) to expand their sound in more ambitious directions.

**Also, look for live audio from Titus Andronicus on visible voice in the next few weeks!**

The Morning Benders:  Big Echo

A big step forward from 2009's Talking Through Tin Cans.  The arrangements are a bit more complex, but the hooks are definitely still there.  The Grizzly Bear influence is evident (Big Echo was produced by GB's Chris Taylor), and that's a good thing as far as I'm concerned.
