LIARS were part of the early 2000s dance punk craze along with bands like THE RAPTURE, RADIO 4 etc... but their first album was the last album that sounded anything like that. The group confused pretty much everyone with their second album "They Were Wrong..." & every album since then has veered into different territory. We're happy to say that "Sisterworld" is another departure from their previous effort & another progression into new lands. In a way, it seems that "Sisterworld" is a culmination of all of the styles on the albums before it. For example, the album starts with a soft falsetto vocal that could be taken from "Drums not Dead." After a short pause, the album explodes into angular noise rock that would fit well on "The Were Wrong..." or their "S/T" album. The rest of the album proceeds through dark, progressive post-punk with sparse arrangements. At times some of the songs might seem simple, but simplicity is probably the major strength of this band. Fans of everything from RADIOHEAD to BECK to NICK CAVE will like this but LIARS are onto something all their own & we think that "Sisterworld" will finally prove that to the masses. This limited edition deluxe edition features an uber fancy fold-out sleeve that gives you a little peak into "Sisterworld" but more importantly, a full disc of remixes from the album by artists such as THOM YORKE, ATLAS SOUND, TUNDE ADEBIMPE (TV ON THE RADIO), DEVENDRA BANHART, MELVINS & more!! Wow!!
