The Liars album Sisterworld is the latest in the band’s catalog to receive the limited edition recycled-vinyl treatment. Originally released in 2010, the reissue is out on April 21st, 2023 on Mute.
The album was hhe band’s fifth studio release, and saw Liars return from Berlin and relocate to the West Coast in the US to create their own space. Building on the back-to-basics approach employed by previous album, Liars (2007), Sisterworld takes an Art-Pop approach to “exploring underground support systems created to deal with the loss of self to society.”
Talking about the recycled vinyl series, Angus Andrew explains:
This record is being re-pressed to recycled colored vinyl, not only to save the Earth, but also so that each album sports its own unique hue composed of the cast off shards of other artists’ dreams!
In 2021, Liars released The Apple Drop. This was their 10th studio album, released 20 years after Liars’ debut. For that collection, Angus Andrew, who is now the sole member of the band, chose to “expand and embrace collaboration.”
The Apple Drop saw Angus working with Avant-Garde Jazz drummer Laurence Pike, multi-instrumentalist Cameron Deyell and lyricist Mary Pearson Andrew.
