Twelve years into their existence, Liars have mastered their peculiar brand of accessible avant rock. Each new record slightly varies from the previous one, but through it all, Liars' music has somehow become more polished and stranger. Daniel Miller (AKA the Normal), the founder of Liars' label, Mute, produced their sixth album, WIXIW, and the result is their slickest to date, Liars at their electronic-poppiest. That being said, the trio haven't lost their lugubrious mystique or knack for brooding melodies and unusual textures, and falsetto-favoring vocalist Angus Andrews still exudes the affecting vulnerability for which he's known. Liars have gone on a very rewarding tangent at time in their career when most bands would be resting on their laurels or fading into oblivion. DAVE SEGAL
