Liars has been making indie rock/post-punk/electronic since 2001 -- it's virtually impossible to pigeonhole the band into one genre, for with each new release the band veers into new sonic landscapes.  Liars' early albums are more indie rock/post-punk, and recent albums feature more of a smooth electro sound.  That all leads to the seventh full length album from Liars titled, Mess, which is brimming with excellence. This record is decidely different sounding than 2012's WIXIW -- Mess relies less on post-OK Computer textures, and is sonically more of a tip of the hat to 80s electro pioneers like old school Mute labelmates Depeche Mode, Yaz, and Erasure, but in an artsier, new fangled, thumpier way.  Sorta.

Mess was released worldwide this week and is definitely worth checking out if you like electro groovy beats (and colorful yarn). Take a listen to the single "Mess On A Mission" and album track "I'm No Gold" below and grab Mess on Amazon, iTunes, or from the band's store.

If nothing else, at least check out the trippy promotional video the band released for the album this week titled "Mess (Not Explained)," which is also posted directly below.
