Liars emerged at the start of the decade as one of the top draws of New York's burgeoning dance-punk scene, before reinventing themselves as one of the most unpredictable art-rock bands of their time. Each album since 2004's haunting, witch-themed They Were Wrong, So We Drowned has twisted their sound in unexpected directions. 2010's Sisterworld was typically unsettling, a claustrophobic record that hints at existential angst and sexual violence, but their new WIXIW dials back that tension a bit, for a lighter, more electronic-based sound.
