The last band to so expertly execute the cocktail of menace and artful, brilliant chaos that Liars achieve for their second album, "They Were Wrong, So We Drowned", were fellow New Yorkers Sonic Youth, when they cut their epochal Bad Moon Rising album.

It’s a record from a band in transition, severing their ties with the scene they kinda inaugurated and have now, decidedly, outgrown. A band defining themselves only in terms of what they wish to achieve, the limits of their imagination. A band withdrawing to a basement deep in the wilds somewhere and letting their every little wrinkle of rampant creativity and twisted genius seep deep into the shadows of this most poignant and chilling ghost story.

The title suggests, of course, the horror and injustice of the witch-hunts, just one of a series of crusades against womankind conducted through the ages, but the album is more even-handed fable than angered tract. Each song on the album is a further chapter in a tale fashioned by Angus after in-depth research into faerie tales and folklore, detailing the struggle between the witches and a village of scared Christians.
