Recommends: Liars - WIXIW

Next week the sixth album from Liars will be released. We've been long-time fans of Liars, and still recall the adventures we had promoting their first Australian tour with The Yeah Yeah Yeahs in 2003. They're awesome and every record is awesome, in short, we had high expectations.

In a recent interview they said they'd consciously "dropped everything that we had learned on the last couple records and tried to really see what it's like starting from the other end. That's always pretty frightening." While it might've been a frightening process the outcome has been rewarding. This album is a confident, assured and focused journey.

Above is the video for their first single "No 1 Against The Rush" or you can listen to the whole album via NPR.
