LIARS announce a London show at 02 Shepherd’s Bush Empire on Thursday 27th May 2010.
Angus Andrew, Aaron Hemphill and Julian Gross return in 2010 with their boldest and most exhilarating record to date. Sisterworld – out 8th March 2010 – was written and recorded in Los Angeles by Liars and Tom Biller and is an invigorating summation of their career so far, a dense art-pop thrill from start to finish.
Featuring the forthcoming single, Scissor, Sisterworld will be available on CD, vinyl and a 2xCD version will feature remixes and reinterpretations of all 11 tracks from artists including Thom Yorke, Tunde Adebimpe (TV On The Radio), Bradford Cox (Deerhunter / Atlas Sound), Melvins, Alan Vega (Suicide), Chris & Cosey (Throbbing Gristle) and Blonde Redhead. Full tracklisting to follow…
Says Angus Andrew, “On this project we wanted to help develop and expand the role of the remix, particularly to engage artists less acknowledged for their work in the field. They were asked to ‘re-interpret’ the song by any means necessary and the result is definitely the most exciting collaborative effort we’ve been involved in.”
Sisterworld is Liars’ own space, completely devoid of influence, somewhere
remote from the false promises and discarded dreams amassed in LA. In it Liars explore the underground support systems created to deal with loss of self to society.
Described as LA’s best new band, FOL CHEN bring their beguiling, witty synth-pop with guitar, funky keyboards and West Coastian harmonies to Shepherds Bush Empire. Their music employs all our favourite electro-fey devices; cheesy ’80s keys, propulsive beats, sporadic strummy guitars that bounce between channels and, of course, xylophone. Beginning with understated, low-register vocals, the keeps building, layering on more instruments and even tossing in a key-change for good measure.
“L.A.’s best new band? Probably” LA weekly
