Liars - 'No 1 Against The Rush'
A soothing krautrock surprise
Teaser videos posted on their website (Andrew stumbling about a studio in a harness, mic-ed up books, mysterious poltergeist activity backed by various tones, bloops and samples) suggest their work on the new record, due out June 4, has been an experimental riot, with Andrew and guitarist Aaron Hemphill having locked themselves away in a remote mountain cabin to write. Their cabin fever leads to our delirious dream, as the track flows smoothly to a climax of odd beauty, the drums picking up the pace through a cloud of fizzing, whirring synths. I can’t wait for more surprises.
