Liars – Latest Album “Sisterworld”

January 30, 2010

liars ticketsOn November 2, 2009, Pitchfork reported that Liars had updated their MySpace page by posting links to the website http://www.thesisterworld.com. Upon clicking the door displayed on the website, three short clips are shown, all three of natural landscapes with amplified ambient sounds. However, when the word “SISTERWORLD” below the door is clicked, the viewer is taken to the Liars‘ merchandise page. On November 4 Liars confirmed that Sisterworld would be the new album, and would be released in early 2010 on Mute Records. On December 8, 2009, Liars released for free on http://www.thesisterworld.com, the premier track from Sisterworld, entitled “Scissor.” The track is 3:38 long, and is a mix of Liars‘ ethereal harmonies from “Drums Not Dead” and the more visceral rock of Liars’ self-titled album.

As of December 24th, 2009, the album has leaked in its entirety onto the internet as low quality mp3s. There is no official release date for the album as of December 26th, and Mute or Liars have not yet commented on the early leak.

The album is now scheduled to be released on CD and Vinyl on Tuesday, March 9th 2010.

Liars – Drum’s Not Dead Live Tour

January 30, 2010

liars ticketsThe rhythmic electroacoustic experimentalism was not only used in the studio set up of Liars‘ album Drum’s Not Dead, but continued in Liars‘s live performances during the Drum’s Not Dead tour. Microphones taped on Gross drum kit and the percussion set of Hemphill picked up the live played rhythms and were modulated heavily by digital real-time processing spring reverbs and pitch shifters forming multi layered drones. The creation of this set-up is outlined in the CD booklet for Drum’s Not Dead.

Liars in Berlin – Drum’s Not Dead

January 30, 2010

liars ticketsCreatively unfazed by the critical response to their unexpected experimental leap, Liars relocated once again to Berlin where Liars would eventually record their third full-length, Drum’s Not Dead (recorded in 2004, released February 2006). During the interim between the recording and release of their previous album, Liars had already begun the work on what would eventually become Drum’s Not Dead. Based on the ideas of Chris Cutler’s electrified drum kit Liars began experimenting with modified drum sounds. After much experimentation, Liars completed the album in an East German broadcast center that allowed them a multitude of different acoustic environments for recording. As the title suggests, the album is heavy on drums (often run through various effects pedals), backed mostly by atmospheric guitar work. Andrew also relies more heavily on falsetto than in past work, which gives the album a more ethereal, less gritty sound than is often associated with Liars. Along with the music, Drum’s Not Dead was released with a DVD that contains three full-length video companions to the album: Drum’s Not Bread by Julian Gross, The Helix Aspersa by Angus Andrew, and By Your Side by filmmaker Markus Wambsganss.

Liars – Witch Hunting Fairy Tale

January 30, 2010

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 – Line-up changes

January 30, 2010

liars ticketsDue to differences of creative methods, it was agreed that Noecker and Albertson would leave Liars to pursue other work. Both joined the short-lived band No Things. (Noecker is now in These Are Powers). Meanwhile, Andrew and Hemphill reunited with Gross to form the next (and current) incarnation of Liars. The first release from Liars as a three-piece was a split EP with the band Oneida, called Atheists, Reconsider (released December 2002 by the Arena Rock Recording Co.). Liars contributed a cover of Oneida’s “Rose and Licorice,” as well as two originals. “Dorothy Taps the Foot of the Tinman” is a 7+ minute sound collage of kitchen-sink percussion, ambient drones and static, and cut and paste spoken words.

Liars – Initial Albums

January 30, 2010

liars ticketsThis line-up (Andrew/Hemphill/Noecker/Albertson) released the first Liars full-length, They Threw Us All in a Trench and Stuck a Monument on Top, in October 2001. The album was recorded in a mere two days. Despite lackluster promotion by their record label, Gern Blandsten, the energy of the album eventually bought Liars their fair share of hype amidst the much-publicized Post-punk revival scene of New York. Liars was not averse to this attention, but the problem of being pigeonholed an even more pressing challenge for them to overcome.

liars ticketsAs a four-piece, Liars were only to release two more short EPs. The first was entitled We No Longer Knew Who We Were; it was an official release of the Liars‘ early demos recorded in 2000. The second, however, showcased new material. Fins To Make Us More Fish-Like (November 2002) showed progression from their signature sound, but without any material that would seem significantly out of place on their debut. Most noteworthy, perhaps, is “Every day is a child with teeth,” which concentrates more on sound texture and tense, stuttering percussion than the more danceable rhythms for which Liars had come to be known.

Formation of Liars Band

January 29, 2010

liars ticketsThe genesis of Liars band can be traced to Los Angeles, where Andrew and Gross were enrolled at Cal Arts, studying photography and graphic design, respectively. Hemphill had studied microbiology in Junior College in San Diego, but was currently employed in LA at a record store. Upon meeting, Andrew and Hemphill began their collaboration on four-track recordings. Once Andrew had completed art school, they relocated to New York together. Although Gross was not a member of Liars‘ NYC-period roster, he was often taken along on tour for hawking the merchandise and providing comedic banter. For the time being, two musicians from Nebraska, Pat Noecker (bass, formerly of Neuromancer, Urethra Franklin, and Opium Taylor) and Ron Albertson (drums, formerly of Mercy Rule), filled out the Liars‘s rhythm section after responding to a well-placed want ad.
