A stone's throw from New York City in Hoboken, New Jersey is where The Title crafts their keen, rhythmic electro-pop. A phenomenal excitement emits from the speakers as 808 beats meet soaring synth lines and poignant vocals send out melodic sigmals of hope. Today's pick of the day, "Meant Said Felt" feels like the Postal Service meeting Daft Punk at the corner of Angst Street and Emotional Avenue. If you listen close, The Title just may tug at your heart strings, but don't worry - they'll be gentle! - Myxertones


"People really like auto-tunes nowadays don't they? It seems that the entire musical scene, from rap to rock, has been littered with bands using the auto-tune effect, and failing miserably at it due to incredibly poor quality and lack of talent. It's hard to pull off auto-tune well, and all-too-easy to screw it up. But when a band can pull this sound off, they do it a lot better then standards would suggest.
And so we come to The Title, five young men from Hoboken, New Jersey set to make a mark on the scene with their "get up and dance" attitude and their undoubtedly catchy brand of auto-tuned/electronica power-pop on their debut album, Making a Scene. When starting to listen to any one of their songs, it's instantly recognizable that these men have an ear for infectious melodies and catchy choruses. The thing that brings this entire package to a close is the excessive use of auto-tune. Lead singer Nick Esposito uses the tool almost perfectly; he isn't using it to make his voice better, but to add an effect to his music. That is the right way to pull off auto-tune: for sheer effect, not for corrections.
Although some of the band's songs come off as a bit morose in their lyrics, such as in "The Last Song" where Nick Esposito sings "You sleep with your heart broken / Both eyes shut and no words spoken." These lyrics normally come off as the beginning of a bad Good Charlotte song, but due to the electronic glitches and the dancey rhythms, it's hard to feel sad when the music feels so good.
This is where the band's greatest strength comes into play: every single song on the album feels good; you can't help but smile, or feel like singing along to the catchy sounds the record presents. This band has created the best summer-listening album possible, where every song makes you feel upbeat, and doesn't let you feel like coming down. Something also impressive about the album is the quality of production: even though it was a self-produced album, Making a Scene sounds as if it was done in a large professional studio paid for by a major label.
If you're looking... for bouncy, light rhythms and catchy, infectious dance tunes, this record is definitely tailored to fit your needs. Don't listen to this CD if you don't want to hear people having a great time making music they love while "Making a Scene" on a dance floor. Because that's all you will find on this album, and you'll love every second of it. Definitely a band that have a very bright future and the musical strength to carry on whatever may come there way - which, determined by this debut, is going to be a lot in the near future." -Absolutepunk.net - Absolutepunk.net

Bio

Started in a dorm room with a techno song, Evan Stalter and Nick Esposito found themselves combining electronic beats and processed vocals with piano and synth in a way they hadn't heard before. Purely making music for their own enjoyment, a myspace page was created to show friends. Almost overnight, The Title's page buzzed with activity and the fan base grew exponentially from there. The decision was made shortly thereafter to move to a full band. Having played highly successful shows since roughly November, The Title's fans know all the words and sing them proudly.
Drawing influence heavily from such groups as Daft Punk and The Postal Service, other influences in entirely different genres include Kanye West and Park.
