   Let’s get weird! Liars has been constantly experimenting with their sound since their debut They Threw Us All in a Trench and Stuck a Monument on Top. I was a huge fan of that album, then they weirded me out with their next two. Finally they started to get some real notoriety when they released Liars and did a tour with Radiohead shortly after. That album took a little while to grow on me. “Plaster Casts of Everything” was the biggest single on that one with an insane video, but was probably my least favorite track of the album (I liked “Houseclouds” and “Freak Out”). Mirrorworld also had its fair share of cool tracks but this new EP is looking very promising, WIXIW, which is out on Mute Records today. After touring with Radiohead, they’ve often been compared. I hear a vague resemblance but even more so, I can tell that Thom Yorke listens to them. It’s great to see Liars really getting recognition as one of the most original bands out there right now (also, their website looks so rad)! They will be performing at Union Transfer at the end of July and its about time I saw them (I saw the tour where they opened for Radiohead, but I was flying back from my cousin’s wedding that day and my flight was delayed for hours and hours, so I missed them along with the first few Radiohead songs. It was a bad day).
