Rock anarchists Liars’ greatest asset is their distractibility. In the years since they jumped on music fans’ radar by jumping on the Brooklyn post-punk bandwagon (or did they?), they’ve experimented with no wave, queasy-sounding art rock, post-Zappa discord and most recently (on last year’s WIXIW) glitchy and occasionally palatial-sounding off-kilter synth pop. Their adventuring has caught the ears of the organizers behind the Wordless Music Series, which tends to pair classical ensembles with indie-rock groups, but in this case, Liars seem to be enough of their own orchestra.
