Liars go quiet, evocative with WIXIW

Finished a review of the new Liars' album WIXIW, and while I can't tell you what I said, I will say that the spasmodic, funk-damaged Liars (i.e. "Mr. You're on Fire Mr.") is probably never coming back. Instead we've got a chilled, kind of beautiful aesthetic, heavy on the machine-beats, but inward looking and hardly hedonistic at all. And, as ever, worth checking out.

It's out on Mute next month.
