Liars – WIXIW

August 27, 2013

So this is obviously not a new album but I cannot stop listening to it. Admittedly, I slept on this one. I’ve always liked and admired Liars for their ability to turn their back on the expectations of their fans and do whatever they want, even if it means alienating their fan base, which they are known for considering the extreme departure from their first album. Again, I admired this but it didn’t make for the most ear friendly music. It got just a tad abstract for me but it could’ve likely just been the time in my life. I would always occasionally revisit their discography and this time, I found a gem. I love the warmth of their electronics even at their coldest sequences. I think they have wrangled in the abstract just enough to create enjoyable ear worms. Case in point, No 1. Against The Rush. I seriously can’t get enough of this song, I don’t care if you’ve been listening to this for the past year, I’m listening to it now. Enjoy.

This video, by the way, is rough and dark. If you don’t want to watch it, just download the song. I won’t be mad.
