Liars – Witch Hunting Fairy Tale

liars ticketsThis newfound experimentation paved the way for Liars‘ next full-length album, They Were Wrong, So We Drowned (recorded in March and May 2003, released February 2004). Liars relocated to a cabin in the woods of New Jersey for the recording sessions, and along with producer David Andrew Sitek of TV on the Radio immersed themselves in both non-fiction accounts of witch trials and traditional witch folklore. From these sources, Liars created a generic fairy tale which is told through contrasting viewpoints in the lyrics. This commitment to the material at the heart of the album – a “story album” (as opposed to “concept album”), according to Andrew – resulted in a thematically rich piece of work that can often feel more atmospheric than musical. To some, the non-traditional instrumentation and song structuring furthers its feel of concept over musicality, along with Sitek’s signature harmonies and sound looping. Many critics responded negatively to this aspect of the album, and though it had its fervent supporters, it infamously garnered the lowest possible scores from both Spin and Rolling Stone magazines.

Liars Tickets are available at Sold Out Ticket Market at nominal rates.
