Editors’ Notes

Liars began as a polarizing trio that received reviews that either hated their albums or worshipped them. The band's uncompromising ways still provoke immediate reactions, and whether they’re using screeching feedback or—most recently—keyboard loops and rhythm boxes, Liars adhere to one pure game plan: going overboard whenever possible. This single-minded determination guarantees that riffs are played beyond their breaking points and that which is harshest will be the most embraced. Liars hit the dance floor with Mess looking to clear it as quickly as possible. Anyone still standing is their audience. “I’m No Gold” takes a fat synth line and repeats it to the point of brainwash, while organ, drum loops, and disjointed vocals merge to create the rest of the sound. Elements of industrial music are present, but things always add up differently under Liars' care. “Mess on a Mission” only reaches hysteria with the chorus, while its other parts are far less coordinated. “Left Speaker Blown” is their idea of the blues in 2014.

Customer Reviews

Terrifying Party Gold

Instantly satisfying. A catchy, vicious, scary, rotten, stuttering nightmare. The extroverted freak sister to their melancholy introverted WIXIW. Every track is great. I was gonna recommend stand outs, but they blend into each other and turn more sinister and apocalyptic as the album progresses. It's a worthy journey; take with a strobe light.

Another great Liar's album

Thank you NPR and Liars for the first listen. From the opening track lyric "take my pants off" to the final track words "watch your hands, ok", this is a monster of an album. It's frightening, danceable, rocking and contemplative. What else should one expect from a Liars album. To quote Todd Rundgren "Now if you have a pair of headphones you better get them out and get them cranked up. Because, they're really going to help you on this one." (from the album Something Anything)

Biography

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Liars were conceived in November 2000 after two friends and ex-Los Angeles art students, Aaron Hemphill and Angus Andrew, reunited in New York City.

The lurching Aussie Andrew took on the vocal/frontman duties while Hemphill became their guitarist and drum machine programmer. Bassist Noecker and drummer Albertson make up the Liars rhythm section. Combined, they write music —...
