Editors’ Notes

Duos that rock have been making a comeback lately, thanks partly to The Black Keys: they've inspired musicians burned out on the politics involved in keeping a large band happy. After his group Theodore called it quits, St. Louis songwriter/singer/guitarist Justin Kinkel-Schuster relocated to Mississippi to work with drummer/multi-instrumentalist Andrew Bryant. Their debut album, Phantom Limb, sent them on an endless tour. Much of Wyoming feels influenced by the stint, where bizarre nights in crappy bars were the norm. If Bruce Springsteen can have Nebraska, then Water Liars can use Wyoming as a desperate end of a dream, as the title track beautifully plays out. "Fake Heat" screams in agony about a pained sexual relationship. "Linens" cruises with a country-rock lope as the harmonies reflect the ache of replaying sad and monotonous scenes and a vibrato-heavy organ adds a static touch. "How Will I Call You" features gorgeous acoustic fingerpicking. "You Work Days I Work Night" turns in a sublime, heartbreaking last dance worthy of Paul Westerberg.

Customer Reviews


I was going to starts at the top and go track by track but this would get way too long. All you need to know if you've come this far is hit BUY ALBUM now. There truly isn't a bad track here. I've been singing these guys praises from the rafter and instagram (@panicchuck) for a long time. I will say something quick about the title track. I can name very few songs that upon first listen pulled me in like "Wyoming" did. I could see myself sitting in that old rusty truck, on a cold gray Wyoming day, outside that drug store. I listened to half that song and never looked back. Bought the entire catalog Water Liars had to date and starting spreading the word about my new favorite band. I loved and still love Justin's "Theodore" work but teamed up with Andrew and his vocal and songwriting skills has made the perfect pair. The Souths Velvet Underground. If VU drove pickups and wore denim and brown leather. I can't wait until Feb 2014 for their new ST album. Keep these guys on your short list of bands to watch. Hopefully this is just the beginning of what they are going to grace our ears and souls with.

Great Album, don't miss out!!!!

You can really tell the men from the boys when you pair it down to just a few instruments. Song writing plays it's cards close to the chest. Fake heat is my favorite track. Your left wondering how it all works out. These guys really know how to put it into lyrics. Can't miss with this one!


Formed: 2011 in Mississippi

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '10s

Coming from years in his long-running rowdy bar band Theodore, St. Louis songwriter/guitarist Justin Kinkel-Schuster met up with drummer/multi-instrumentalist Andrew Bryant in Pittsboro, Mississippi, and on a whim the duo recorded some of Kinkel-Schuster's spare compositions. Mere days later, Theodore disbanded, with most of the group re-forming into a new combo called Demonlover and Kinkel-Schuster relocating to Mississippi, where he and Bryant officially formed Water Liars.
