Post Punks LIARS At Their Best On Their 10th Album ‘THE APPLE DROP’

7 August 2021

Band: LIARS
Who: Australian-American indie rock trio
Active: Since 2000 / 9 albums (so far)

New album: THE APPLE DROP – 10th LP
Out: 6 August 2021 – more info here

NME says: “To hear Angus Andrew discuss the ungoverned maelstrom of
Liars’ career – whereby a bunch of ‘00s NYC funk-punks turned to witch rock,
then to various forms of experimental electronica and dance via a myriad of
diversions along the way – you’d start believing it has its own perfect physics;
an imperceptible molecular order, a post-rock M Theory where the chaos make
sense… Andrews keeps hook-lines at the heart of the record, anchoring music
that might otherwise drift out of orbit. To paraphrase Arthur C. Clarke: science,
sufficiently advanced, is indistinguishable from magic.”

Full review here. Score: 4/5.

Turn Up The Volume: Even after 9 albums Angus Andrews and his team
succeed to surprise. This 10th album is full of ideas, tunes and stuff that
keeps your ears busy for a while.

Five Firecrackers To Stay On Track… In The Weekend

17 July 2021

‘I’m Only Talking’ by MEWN (Manchester)

Frontman Daniel Bluer: “It is long but I think it does a lot with that time, it’s fully realised. Lyrically I just tried to mirror the emotion I felt from the sound, the way it felt to me. I think
I have tried to express loss, defiance and a melancholy that has some joy mixed in with it,
which personally feel like it always does.”

This is what epicness is all about. An experience that makes you feel out-of-your-daily-mind, an experience that makes you forget anything and everybody except for what’s going on in your headphones. Melodrama, heartache, despair, and tears. It’s all part of human nature, as we know it. Throwing in melancholic Interpol guitars and a Verve-esque sentimentally lifts this song to a cry-your-heart-out anthem. Ignore the machos.

Just listen and feel…

‘Big Appetite’ by LIARS (Australia)

Wayward as we know Liars for years now, meaning: wayward as we know them
for years now. From upcoming album The Apple Drop, their 10th, out 6 August.

Eat here…

‘I Am A Situation’ by AUTOGRAMM (Chicago)

This synth-Krautrock-like jam grooves and moves under your skin from the kick-off, without asking. Again, the hypnotic force of sonic repetition proves its trance-inducing effect. You want this situation to continue, on and on. From the band’s Rules album.

Press the repeat button…

‘Transparent Love’ by SUPER SPACE NATION (Los Angeles)

These Los Angeles power pop-punks are “on a mission to fight toxic masculinity in the rock scene.” Their new electrifying cracker is about “taking full accountability for one’s actions and communication in relationships.” Damn right. Be who you are, but respect others. That’s the only way to keep this troubled world going. And don’t forget to rock your ass off.

Right here, right now

‘Lover Baby’ by THE DILL (Canada)

Be ready for some funky monkey business. Get up, stand up and make your move while savoring the moment. Don’t worry be happy. Have yourself a careless I’ll-see-what-happens moment and have your head floating in the clouds. Listen up: “Sometimes we need to just
go for a walk and dance down the street for the hell of it – taking the piss out of life.”
Bingo!

Tune in and go apeshit…

See/hear you next week, music junkies…

Second Single From Upcoming Album – LIARS Have A ‘BIG APPETITE’

New sonic impulses…

17 June 2021

Band: LIARS
Who: Australian-American indie rock trio
Active: Since 2000 / 9 albums (so far)

New album: THE APPLE DROP – 10th LP
Out: 6 August 2021 – more info here

New single: BIG APPETITE – 2nd cut from the LP
Slo-mo stonker with a haunting and spooky progression. Top!

Angus Andrew (the band’s orchestra master) about the video
for the new song: “I thought that spelunking with bats for the
first single Sekwar video tested the upper limits of my fear
tthreshold, but it turns out having a revved up drill pointed
close to my forehead for a day is truly the stuff of nightmares.”
