LIARS "TFCM (Mute)"
TFCM (which is short for Theme From Crying Mountain), the newest album from Liars, is the first since guitarist Aaron Hemphill left the band, leaving Angus Andrew as the sole member. If you’ve been listening to Liars for a while now, then you’ve come to expect the unexpected from their sound. Combining some of the dance hints from their latest albums, as well as the acoustic guitar and electro-experimentation of their 2006 standout Drum’s Not Dead, TFCM is as wonderfully strange as anything they have ever released. Sometimes the record sounds like modern classical music, and other times it sounds like Negativland. As someone who has spent a lot of time listening to both of those things, I’m pleased as punch. Check out “Cred Woes.”
