Liars “Rush” Into The Current’s Studio

Liars

Brooklyn’s Liars recently channeled the sombre sounds of The National with an 80’s synth-driven twist during their in-studio performance of “No.1 Against The Rush” for Minnesota Public Radio’s The Current.   The song’s home is on the band’s sixth studio album, WIXIW, which Drowned In Sound calls “a refreshing, sublime, and exciting work of art.”

Watch the band’s performance here, and be sure to let us know what you think of their new work in the comments section below.

Liars Release Video For “The Overachievers”

Liars

According to Pitchfork, Liars are a band for those who “like [their] art-punk a bit deranged and spastic.”   One of my own friends reported that they were the loudest live band he’d ever heard.  And with that, I’m sold.

This Brookyln-based trio just released a delightfully intense, Patrick Bateman-inspired video for “The Overachievers” from their latest album, Sisterworld. Check it out here.

If you’re as intrigued by their sonic vision as I am, you’ll be glad to know that the band will be making a stop right here in Madison on their upcoming summer tour.  Get tickets to their July 14th show at High Noon Saloon here.  This one’s gonna be wild.
