Album Review: Liars - WIXIW

Wednesday 6th June, 2012 2:49PM

With WIXIW (Wish You) Liars have turned all introspective, delivering a sixth studio album that is haunting for its self-reflection and nostalgia, rather than any obvious theme.

The hype for WIXIW started about six months ago as the band began posting on their appropriately-titled Ė considering their Sisterworld obsession with bloody, crude crime - Amateur Gore tumblr page. The video posts were abstract collages of seemingly disparate footage, interspersed by the band in their practice space. Time lapse footage of a decaying banana, band in practice space, an ant colony taking over a plant, Google Map of the bandís practice space, the letter ĎLí misshapen at the bottom of a water-filled bath, the band in their practice space, microphones held up to inanimate objects like a pile of books: practice space-weirdness-practice space-weirdness. Itís same shit different day for Liars, a bunch of art-school kids who have changed sonic tact on each successive record.
