Vinyl LP pressing of the NY Alt-Rock band's 2004 sophomore album. Liars know why their debut won them instant acclaim. It's no accident that They Were Wrong So We Drowned bears so little resemblance to their debut. Circumstance plays a part- the old want-ad rhythm section hightailed it prior to recording, leaving longtime associate Julian Gross to take over on drums- but more importantly, to Liars, they've beaten dance-punk at it's own game and are ready to move on. So maybe masochism is a better way to describe what's going on here- what else could cause a band to willfully alienate their supporters? Independent music isn't exactly the easiest racket in town, after all, even if you're blessed with almost instant celebrity (relatively speaking). But to walk away from your clearest, most accessible shot at success, to dare any fair weather trend-riders to keep listening after the wave has crested- well, you have to be more than ready for a backlash; you need to want to savor it. Mute.
