dontcare Heres what happens when Titus Andronicus covers Icona Pops I Love It

Titus Andronicus continue to baffle us, this time with a booze-drenched  schizophrenic cover of Icona Pop’s “I Love It”, which they’ve aptly dubbed, “I Don’t Care”. If you were expecting a strict translation — similar to CHVRCHES’ recent take on HAIM’s work — then step outside, buddy. This one’s a squealing mess of reverb, distortion, Kansas tornados, and Patrick Stickles doing his best upside down Joe Strummer impersonation. It’s F’d up nonsensical and reason 4,500,213,322 we love these New Jersey brats. Stream below.

Wanna see this madness live? The band is offering plenty of chances this fall. The “Manifest Destiny Tour” stretches from late August through late September. Consult their full schedule below. Or, if you have $50 bucks to spare, Patrick Stickles can come to your house to play it.
