[Watch] Liars - "WIXIW" (Official Video)

Liars steer away from their previous baffling endeavours, aiming instead towards a slick, stylized contrast in their new video for "WIXIW", the title track from last year's WIXIW. The black-and-white video, directed by Alex 2Tone, focuses on a committed individual and his slam dunk attempts. Frontman Angus Andrew described the clip to EW as "a beautifully shot black-and-white basketball version of Sisyphus", which makes sense when you realize that said individual never sinks a basket. It still makes for a visually stunning experience. Check it out above.

[Watch] Liars - "Brats" (Official Video)

What the fuck? Seriously... what the fuck? Liars have taken music videos to a new level of weird with this one. The visuals for "Brats" play out as if Elmer Fudd and Bugs Bunny were placed in the impossible-to-control world of QWOP, and then throw in some acid-induced distortion for good measure. Good thing the song itself is so awesome. Check it out above.

Liars' latest LP WIXIW is out now via Mute.

On June 5th, three fantastic albums will be released by three separate artists from across the spectrum. The first is Neil Young & Crazy Horse, who will be releasing Americana, their tribute to the old-timey American songbook of the same name. The entire album is available to stream on Soundcloud. As well, Jonathan Demme's third concert film of the prolific Canadian musician, titled Neil Young Journeys, is set for release on June 29th, exactly one month from today.

Next on the docket are Japandroids, the Vancouver punk rock duo whose sophomore LP Celebration Rock has been a long time coming. The long awaited follow-up to Post-Nothing is now available to stream in full on NPR.org.

Yet another June 5th release is the sixth studio album from Liars, titled WIXIW. Give the full album a listen over at Pitchfork.

[Sunday Pickup] Beck Presents: The Record Club - Kick

We're bring this week's Sunday Pickup back to the days of our initial pickups with a brand new Record Club album. As you may have heard, Beck and friends (St. Vincent, Daniel Hart, Sergio Dias (of Os Mutantes) and The Liars) recently finished their series of videos showcasing their 24 hour session they had re-imagining INXS' album Kick. I have to say I truly enjoyed this session more than the others. If you haven't heard the previous sessions/albums, don't fret, we got them for your listening pleasure as well. Check out the links below and enjoy this talented and awesome series. ORDER UP!

[Watch] Beck's Record Club “Tiny Daggers” (INXS Cover)

And alas, we come to the end of this Record Club session with the final track "Tiny Daggers" off INXS album Kick (unless Beck decides on releasing the bonus reissue tracks). It has been a long but enjoyable Record Club session with St. Vincent, Daniel Hart, Sergio Dias (of Os Mutantes) and The Liars but sadly it has come to an end. Check out the final video for the Kick session above. Enjoy!

Liars have confirmed the tracklisting and artwork for the 2CD version of their eagerly anticipated new album, Sisterworld, out March 9th, 2010 on CD, vinyl and a 2CD version with very special packaging.

Sisterworld, Liars’ boldest and most exhilarating record to date, is a dense art-pop thrill from start to finish and features the new single, Scissor, described by the NME as “a feral thriller” and released on February 16th. Sisterworld is Liars’ own space, completely devoid of influence, somewhere remote from the false promises and discarded dreams amassed in LA. In it Liars explore the underground support systems created to deal with loss of self to society.
 
Liars will tour North America in support of Sisterworld this coming Spring. The tour sees fellow LA band Fol Chen supporting Liars on all dates.
