Liars' palindromic new album

Pretty sure this is in the new print issue of Blurt, which came in the mail yesterday, looks great and will soon be on newsstands everywhere(ish).


Liars don't tread the same ground twice, but WIXIW is less of a jump than usual. The sixth full-length continues progress towards a chilled, incantatory electronic sound that has been in motion since Drum's Not Dead. Kraut-ish influences drift in and out, but here they are muted to a Beta Band-like hybrid of soft melody and twitchy beat.


Pitchfork is streaming the whole thing.
