Holidays time, slower times. Nevertheless, I recently got to listen to the latest Liars LP, their 6th one. I was skeptical at first : I got to see them live a few times in the early 2000’s, and while the shows were good and the records more then alright, it just felt a little late for this music at the time. Hence my surprise with WIXIW, a mesmerizing collection of noise electronic ballads, a trance like state inducing album. This record is indeed filled with potential hits, underground ones, mind you, but still filled! It would be difficult to extract one song over the others, but that’s we do, so there it is, in its live glory, so you grasp the means they used to accomplish this rebirth.
