Biography

It’s almost ten years since they first started making music together, but at the start of a new decade Liars find themselves in the unlikely position of being art-rock elder statesmen.

This is unlikely because, while some of the other bands lumped into the Brooklyn post-punk revival scene that first brought Liars to prominence have floundered, this is a group that have constantly ... Read more in Amazon's Liars Store

Editorial Reviews

Sisterworld, the follow up to Liars (2007), was written and recorded in Los Angeles by Liars and Tom Biller (Kanye West, Beck, Where The Wild Things Are / Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind soundtracks) This is the first Liars album to be recorded entirely in the USA since 2004s They Were Wrong, So We Drowned and sees Angus Andrew, Aaron Hemphill and Julian Gross taking inspiration from fringe characters lured to LA and the resulting subcultures and alternate spaces that they generate.Sisterworld is Liars own space, completely devoid of influence, somewhere remote from the false promises and discarded dreams amassed in LA. In it Liars explore the underground support systems created to deal with loss of self to society. Say Liars, We're interested in the alternate spaces people create in order to maintain identity in a city like LA. Environments where outcasts and loners celebrate a skewered relationship to society.

4.0 out of 5 stars "SISTERWORLD" [Vinyl; Limited Edition] April 26, 2010
Format:Vinyl
The product description for the vinyl Deluxe Edition of SISTERWORLD is largely lacking, so I thought I'd expound on what one might expect. You get both the 180-gram vinyl AND CD versions of the original album, PLUS the 180-gram and CD versions of SISTERWORLD REINTERPRETATIONS. And two booklets. Again that's two records and two compact discs, not just the one that's described here.

It's a nice overall package, to be sure; the gold-plated speakeasy on the front sleeve even swings open. Seems to be well worth the money. So get it before it's sold out, no doubt destined to be snapped up by the vinyl fetishists. I'm looking at YOU, vinyl fetishist!

This is a brilliant album, and if the Liars weren't so damn oblique I would have heard it a lot sooner. Why is it called SISTERWORLD? I can find no basis for it anywhere. Why the little gold mailbox? Again, no clue. The photos in the foldout insert are more apropos, the three band members looking like bedraggled office workers lost in the woods, which turns out to be right out of the song "The Overachievers." I remember looking at them on the band's website when the album came out and wondering what it signified.

The first four songs are basically an introduction, immersing the listener in an ominous, claustrophobic urban setting. "Scissor" begins with melancholy verses which are interrupted by a loud, aggressive chorus. "No Barrier Fun" is outstanding with prominent cello, violin and viola as well as bassoon. Rattling, clicking percussion are accompanied by rhythmic, bouncing electronic noises, and a xylophone line over the top. "Here Comes All the People" begins with an electric guitar figure which stands out in contrast to the previous track. An ominous (key description for most of the album!) 4-note guitar figure drives the song. The repeated line "carry victims one by one" is the first clear, memorable lyric so far. Which brings me to the fact that I can't suss out most of the lyrics, and there is no lyric sheet anywhere to be found, including online. So I'm sure I'm missing a lot, and I'll share the key lines I can hear. It's all tremendously effective on the level of mood, in any event. The last of the opening songs is "Drip," which is quiet with a clicking snare rim and electronics. The singer eventually asks "when will I awake," and then there is a dramatic piano interlude before the fade.

5.0 out of 5 stars Masterpiece! March 11, 2010
Format:MP3 Music
I have listened to many good albums this year and this one sticks out as the best by a landslide. It is different than anything else you will listen to. So if you like all your music the same, you shouldn't check this out. It is dark, but than again so was OK Computer when it came out. The song climbing up the walls is still one of the most erie songs I've ever heard, and this albums reminds me of that. It makes you think and realize that you are listening to an amazingly moving and powerful band! I saw them open for Radiohead a few years ago, and although they have a very different sound, I would easily call them the "American Radiohead" because they are so unique and different. Like Radiohead, none of their albums are identical, but vastly different. Which is a breath of fresh air. To finally see a band pushing the limits creatively and not going for radio play or to be top 40, which lets face it, generally is horrible music anyway. This is an album I can't stop listening to and won't for a very long time. It is dark, yes, but not depressing at all, and what it pulls off is really a remarkable feat that may not be topped this year!
