That's pretty exciting. They have a new album out this year that I've yet to hear. Congrats on the gig and enjoy the show!

I'm going to New York next week and have the chance to see Pyrrhon, Liars, and John Zorn and Bill Frisell, among others.

Anyone been to any of these shows?

Yeah, I saw Liars way back when they first started to get some buzz. They were insane and droney and noisy and awesome. I'm not sure they would be now though. They've kinda trended downward over the years.

My thoughts exactly, their first few albums were pretty cool, but nothing since seems to have been quite as good.

On the other hand, it's a free show, so...

I still listen to Drum's Not Dead from time to time. That album was killer.

Oh, you are not kidding my friend.

That’s actually their best, in my opinion. It’s when all those wild and disparate ideas from their first couple of albums and EPS really came together with some razor sharp focus. It’s the zenith of Liars, and it honestly filled me with hope about their future. I listened to that thing CONSTANTLY when it came out, and it blew me away then as it does now when I deign to put it on (which isn’t often enough). Truly one of the great albums of that decade.

The self-titled album had some insanely good moments too, as did “Sisterworld,” but “WIXIW” didn’t quite hit its mark, and “Mess” was strong for maybe 2 listens. It was around the time of “Mess” that I realized this was no longer a band I was committed to. I don’t even care about that new thing that’s out — that album that’s just Angus Andrew, doing whatever and wearing a dress.

Where did it go wrong? Well, maybe they should have ended it with “Drum’s Not Dead,” because it was all downhill from there even though the next two albums had plenty of sweet spots. But really I think “WIXIW” was the death knell. They tried to zig-left and rebuild as an entirely electronic-type thing, a la the over-referenced Radiohead/Kid A pivot. But while “WIXIW” was OK, I think the fact that it wasn’t great or revelatory should have been a sign to the band, saying, “Hey, fucking do something else!”

Oh well.

I went to see Morton Subotnick+Llevan yesterday.

One of the best concerts in a very very long time. Hell, the dude is 84 years old and delivered a show that most "electronic" music producers can only dream of. Beautiful.
