Liars have always been preoccupied with the spaces they record in, whether the New Jersey rural thing for They Were Wrong, So We Drowned, or Berlin's analog studio spaces for Drums Not Dead. Produced by Tom Biller, a guy who's done Kanye West and Beck, the album, Sisterworld, is all psyched on LA:
“This is the first Liars album to be recorded entirely in the USA since 2004’s “They Were Wrong, So We Drowned” and sees Angus Andrew, Aaron Hemphill and Julian Gross taking inspiration from fringe characters lured to LA and the resulting subcultures and alternate spaces that they generate.”
As usual, this means the music was created in a pristine vacuum:
“Sisterworld is Liars’ own space, completely devoid of influence, somewhere remote from the false promises and discarded dreams amassed in LA. In it Liars explore the underground support systems created to deal with loss of self to society.
“Say Liars, 'We're interested in the alternate spaces people create in order to maintain identity in a city like LA. Environments where outcasts and loners celebrate a skewered relationship to society.'”
