So you’re a fan of Liars; you’ve been digging their album Drum’s Not Dead for months; you know how beautiful and naïve the final track is, with its nursery hush, twinkling melody and cracked vocals; you figure this is how Cobain might have sounded if he’d mixed a little MDMA with his H. So, you’re probably not going to buy this new CD single just because it’s got a radio edit. You know what might do it? Maybe a brand new number, “Do As the Birds, Eat the Remains”, with jagged guitars, glitchy drums and fascistic vocal commands. Or maybe a trancey, percussion-heavy remix of “Drum and the Uncomfortable Can”. Probably, though, it’s going to be the four bonus videos, directed by the band. How else are you going to get to see Aaron feasting on a corpse by the sea?
