The Liars album WIXIW was released last year, but is the gift that keeps on giving. Today we get a new video for the song "The Exact Color of Doubt," directed by Markus Wambsganss. It's a nice piece of augmented reality, portraying the band members in a 3D wireframe environment.
Spacelab writer Jeff Daily reviewed WIXIW and said "Liars latest album is titled WIXIW (pronounced "wish you") and it is not, contrary to NPR's claim, "the best Radiohead album since Kid A." On first spin it does remind the listener of Thom Yorke's gang of magicians because the songs are moody electronic introverted man machine music. The comparisons should end there. This is a different band with a different outlook.
Singer Angus Andrew is a less instantly recognizable vocally than Yorke. He sings like a man being swallowed by gadgets...or is that "swallowing" gadgets? Andrew's voice is in excellent form on this album. The backing music is just as solid. Liars have built a career around shifting their sonic focus from record to record. They've done that once again with WIXIW."
