St. Vincent, Liars, Os Mutantes Join Beck’s Record Club

Annie Clark doesn't mention the album they tackled, but the St. Vincent mastermind did Tweet that she teamed up with Tropicalia stalwarts Os Mutantes and Liars for one of Beck's Record Club collaborations and that it'll be online "soonish" and was "serious fun." (Guess: First Suicide record?)… More »

Liars – “Proud Evolution (Thom Yorke 500qd Remix)”

A couple days ago we heard Devendra Banhart inhabit Liars' excellent "The Overachievers," reversing the frequency of the opposites attract/urban cynic vs. L.A. hippie love song for the deluxe edition of Sisterworld’s Reinterpretations disc. Various able-minded individuals also helped build the "reinterpretation" collection's intriguing tracklist, but Radiohead fanatics have inevitably zeroed in o… More »

Liars – “The Overachievers” (Devendra Banhart & The Grogs Redo) (Stereogum Premiere)

One of my favorite Sisterworld songs is the sweetly sarcastic urban cynic vs. L.A. hippie love song "The Overachievers." What better way to invert the frequency (and bio-cars, woodsy walks, etc.) than to have longtime Hairy Faerie Devendra Banhart offer a mellowed-out, dew-dripped campfire version? DB & The Grogs' sleepy, somewhat eerie take i… More »

Liars – “Scissor” Video

There's a certain paranoia lurking beneath the laconic vocalisms Angus layers at the outset of "Scissor," the opening track to Liars typically excellent new LP Sisterworld. Andrew uses that storyteller's pace and injection of unease to foreshadow then launch into a claustrophobic freakout. Reset. And repeat. It's a push-pull of dramatic tension befitting thi… More »

Radiohead Might Have Wrapped Up A New Album

According to a blog post by LA Times writer Jia-Rui Cook, the guys recently held a "wrap party" after a three-week Los Angeles recording session. Said soiree reportedly took place 1/30 at Nigel Godrich's place in the Hollywood Hills. Hollywood people attended. Yeah, the whole thing could be conjecture or a lie or whatever, but… More »

New Liars – “Scissor”

In the midst of this "chillwave" moment, the jagged claustrophobia of Liars' anticipated (and ambitious) fifth album Sisterworld (3/9, Mute) -- outcasts and loners mixing it up in a post-punk riot of paranoia, cynicism, humor, dirt -- is a great way for folks scared of things labeled "noise," "punk," or "metal" to inject… More »

Liars Ready Sisterworld

Liars' Tom Biller-produced fifth album, the first recorded Stateside since They Were Wrong, looks at "alternate spaces people create in order to maintain identity in a city like LA ... where outcasts and loners celebrate a skewered relationship to society." It's out early 2010. Go West. More »

Pole Dancing Remains The Pastime Of Strippers, Despite What Pole Dancing Hobbyists Think

A pole dancing studio in Utah has started a petition to make pole dancing a sport in the 2012 Olympics. FAIR ENOUGH. I am not about to come to anyone's work and slap the pole out of their crotch. But let's be really honest with ourselves, pole dancing community. If you want to make… More »

Audrina Patridge Has A Blog

Audrina Patridge has a blog! So what! To be fair, of all the people on The Hills, Audrina is the most interesting. She's kind of nice, and she's kind of pretty, but she's not that nice, and she's not that pretty. Also she does a pretty good job of disguising her fame cravings,… More »

Springsteen, Liars, Spiritualized, Grinderman, And Others Cover Suicide

Alan Vega and Martin Rev, aka dark lo-fi electro-duo Suicide, were amazing in their heyday, especially when you consider they formed in 1971, pre-dating and influencing a shit-load of post-punk, noise, no wave, synth-pop, and industrial acts that followed. (If you don't have their self-titled 1977 or 1980 albums, pick them up or, for now,… More »

1. Liars – “Army of Me”

Liars On "Army Of Me" "We were in Belgium when we got this call. I became sleepless with excitement -- tossing and turning thinking of Post. Immediately my brain got stuck on that bass line from 'Army of Me.' All night in my head it went: Duh nu nuh nu nuh nu nuh de DuhMore »

No Age/Liars @ Warsaw, Brooklyn 2/9/07

By Amrit Singh You could almost hear the collective moan come from Brooklyn when news broke that Liars's manic lead man Angus Andrew had thrown out his back a few weeks ago (picking up a pillow, of all things). From the day the band's bill with No Age at Brooklyn's Warsaw (home of deliciou… More »

Well, today we turn that reference into a listenable reality, pre-teen siblings Ivan and Ada unleashing a radio riot landslide atop the Liars standout.
