Liars have never stood still, and refuse to be categorised.

After forming in the Los Angeles area, where co-founders Angus Andrew and Aaron Hemphill met at the famed California Institute of the Arts, the band soon after decamped to Brooklyn, and released their first album, They Threw Us in a Trench and Stuck a Monument On Top (2001).

The album saw the band at the vanguard of the newly emerging Brooklyn naughties music scene, and with their next release, Andrew and Hemphill enlisted Julian Gross to the line-up and wilfully confounded all expectations with the groundbreaking They Were Wrong, So We Drowned, a confrontational, noisy concept cycle dealing with German witch trials co-produced by the band with David Sitek (TV on the Radio, Yeah Yeah Yeahs).

Soon after the band moved to Berlin to create 2006’s Drum’s Not Dead: a conceptual album about the poisonous power dynamic between two fictional protagonists Drum and Mount Heart Attack. The release was accompanied by three different sets of visuals, and the album was awarded #6 in Pitchfork’s Top 50 Albums of that year.

The eponymous 2007 follow-up replaced their now trademark themes with an emphasis on stripped-down, primal rock and roll and a rejection of concept. Rolling Stone awarded Freak Out one of their Tracks of the Year.

The band returned to LA to create their next release, 2009’s Sisterworld, whose critical acclaim included the #1 slot in The Quietus' albums of the year.

2012’s WIXIW, saw the band once more climb out of their comfort zone, overcoming a steep learning curve to record "direct into the computer". The result is a stunning album. Nominated as an album of the year at the AIM Awards and featured in many Albums of 2012, WIXIW achieved the rare feat of being both their most accessible and most challenging work to date.

In 2013 Liars were invited by Hedi Slimane to rework a track to soundtrack Saint Laurent’s SS14 Paris Fashion Week catwalk show and touring that year saw them premiere new tracks at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Primavera & Sonar festivals.

Liars' incredible discography leaves the field wide open for their album, Mess, which was released in March 2014. Mess is an angry, ecstatic, primal burst of ritualistic electronics, the sound of Liars not only facing their fears, but chewing them up and spitting them back out in all their technicolor glory.

Liars are putting the finishing touches on their next studio album, due out on Mute in 2017.
YVETTE
YVETTE
YVETTE are Noah Kardos-Fein and Dale Eisinger. The duo is based in Brooklyn, and make deeply spiritual, wildly aggressive noise music in the tradition of early post-punk and industrial artists like Throbbing Gristle, Cabaret Voltaire, and This Heat. A barrage of rolling toms and sub-bass triggers, processed guitar noise, and monk-like incantations means the music is always physical, but the joy of YVETTE is how well they structure the chaos. "Theirs is a noise molded into the contours—if not the sound—of pop music, offering an accessible entry point into a world of ugly brutalism," wrote Pitchfork's Stuart Berman, who gave the band's debut record "Process" an 8.1. YVETTE have performed alongside the The Rapture, Hisham Bharoocha, White Suns, Metz, Talk Normal, and are part of the Godmode Music family.
