Video: Liars – “Cred Woes”
From TFCF, out now on Mute.
Reminds me of weird, early Beck. Remember when he used to sing about washing dishes and blowing leaves and stuff? Good times. Now we’ve got Liars singing about his “minimum wage routine” and sampling a bit of “My Sharona.” What year is this? Is Carl Stephenson involved?
I like the taste of cola on ice
In the employee lounge
Kick back in comfort, fearless
Regardless, this song is pretty cool. Especially if you like Mellow Gold-era b-sides and deep cuts.
Liars are playing Riot Fest at 2:15 PM on Friday, September 15.

Liars – They Threw Us All In A Trench And Stuck A Monument On Top (Blast First/Mute Records)
As Abraham Lincoln so famously said, “People who like this sort of thing will find this the sort of thing they like.” If you like po-mo pseudo punk that seems a lot more clever than it really is, and sounds good in the clubs, this is for you. I thought it was kind of boring, myself.
Based on the CD title, I was expecting some ferocious, angry agit-prop noise that was going to bitchslap me for being part of the problem, like an even angrier version of International Noise Conspiracy. Instead I got wankeriffic art-noise that sounds like Sonic Youth with a sampler. I ended up listening to Dirty instead. You will, too.
