12/12/2011 #Rare: Coldplay- In My Place (Titus Andronicus Cover)
When they aren’t busy playing rowdy punk-rock and calling out Bon Iver on twitter, Titus Andronicus apparently like to make covers of Coldplay. This #rare cover of everyone’s favorite whiny-brit-pop band is a stunner. The lyrics that Stickles ad-libs are especially amazing at enhancing the song’s vibe while still giving the song a unique Titus Andronicus spin. Some bloggers may have called this awful but I’d have to disagree… they probably just didn’t pick up on the deep, underlying metaphors of the cover. Also I’ll take this any day over the original.
