Three years on from the release of All Tense Now Lax, which was one of our Picks of 2015, Southend-on-Sea’s experimental outfit Liberez are back with a new album and an expanded line up. Entitled Way Through Vulnerability, the record sees them exploring new genres and influences, including Flamenco rhythms, Italian avant-garde and UK industrial music. Basque language, Hungarian dialect and ancient Russian are also used in the record, “to lend their compositions a cross-cultural underpinning and eschew any clear geographic origin”, describes the press release, “a decision which all but adds to the perplexities of their unique brand of electro-acoustic purgatory.”
Way Through Vulnerability is out on November 30th through Alter and ‘Cellophane Window’ serves as the first fascinating taste from it. The track comes with an accompanying video directed by Matthew Reay and you can watch it below.
With only a couple of weeks to go till Liberez release their new album, All Tense Now Lax, the Southend-on-Sea experimental industrial outfit are enticing us further with a new single. ‘419 Chop Your $’, offered with an accompanying video, is described as “a brooding collage of smudged percussion and eerie strings, with obscured vocals that lead up to the refrain of “It’s just a game”, the unnerving repetition at odds with the sentence’s meaning.”
Check out the video below and watch out for the album’s release when it drops on July 24th via Night School Records.
In other related good news, Liberez are performing a record release show on July 27th at Cafe Oto in London.
Southend-on-Sea’s experimental industrial outfit Liberez have announced a new album, All Tense Now Lax. Slated for a July 24th release via Night School Records, the effort is described as “an all-consuming album of frightening power”. All Tense Now Lax sees the band exploring new musical territories “to produce a flawlessly engineered machine that consumes the beholder”. explains the press release. “Salient sonic ingredients swirl around chamber music drone, flowing in to chalky noise rock, and exposed to charged particles of feedback and thrumming currents.”
Ahead of the album’s release, Liberez are offering the first taste in the form of a video for the lead single “Grease The Axles”. Check it out below.
