Does Collecting Make You Feel Dirty?
Prodding the Pleasure Center
Sometimes a review speaks to me with a force that makes my ears ring:
In essence, Liars is scorched-blacktop biker music played through the art-rock filter of a band that's spent the last few years steeped in the bleak sounds of German new wave and early industrial.
I've already heard enough of the new Liars record to appreciate the aptness of this description. But even if I hadn't, I'd know enough from this single Jess Harvell sentence to beat a path to the record store as soon as I am able.

I haven't had a chance to hear the new record yet, but I've enjoyed everything they've done previous & am quite fond of their latest single. Unfortunately, they just canceled a show here.

They won't play here anymore, most likely. We don't get many bands that big. I did see them open for the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Sleater-Kinney, though, back in 2002. Anyway, the record should be fun.

Love the glasses in that latest self-portrait, BTW. Love the self-portrait period!
