Uneasy listening from one of rock's most forward-thinking outfits
It’s been a busy few months for shapeshifting rock combo Liars, with sixth album WIXIW drawing praise as one of their strongest and subtlest to date, US tour dates aplenty and a single released last week, ‘Brats’, whose video locked the LA-based trio locked in a CGI dance of death with Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd. In the last issue, we asked the band to share some of the fundamental rules they aim to live by as an outfit — basically, listen to Daniel Miller and eat lots of hamburgers until you make a fucking good record. Now they’ve made us a mix that combines many of their interests — uneasy listening, expressive electronica, noise rock — into a stunning whole which you can listen to below. Enjoy!
