Liam the Younger stuck to the old format of passing around homemade tapes and CD-Rs to friends, never seeming to give a damn whether it got him signed and it worked. Underwater Peoples is working with his label A Learning Computer to re-issue After The Graveyard and Clear Skies Over Black River, both of which have been remastered.
On the track “Cooking,” which is found on CSOBR, Liam still sounds DIY to the bone marrow. It has the feel of a 2 a.m. recording session in the kitchen and no one is home but Liam. It's that sort of isolation that allows him to slip into a fragile state and place weight in the refrain “change those shes and hes to Is, change it to Is.” Even when the banjo joins him, it somehow does not give the impression that he's got a friend in the room. It feels like an overdub, which is even lonelier.
In addition to remastering those two records, Underwater Peoples is also streaming Liam's Revel Hidden Worlds, which is available on vinyl.
