The fifth Liars album is relentlessly tense- not so much scary as surreal. Every track is shrouded in echo and anxiety, and often all the tension erupts into bursts of buzzing guitars or pounding beats. Not every dark cloud breaks into a thunderstorm, but it constantly feels like one is lurking around the corner. Despite such potential for surprise, overall Sisterworld isn't actually all that surprising compared to the rest of Liars' discography. For a band known for switching gears from track to track and album to album, this is the most thoroughly Liars-sounding record so far.

Instead, it's a record informed by the city's sprawling expanse.

After taking a break from concepts with their self-titled album, Liars return to themed songs with Sisterworld, an album about the alternate spaces people create to survive in Los Angeles - and they’re just as weird, thought-provoking, scary, funny, and ambitious as ever. This is the first time the band has recorded in the . since They Were Wrong, So We Drowned, working in several studios across . It’s a homecoming for Liars in more ways than one.
