WATER LIARS

Phantom Limb

2012-03-26

Water Liars formed in Missouri in 2011 and recorded their debut album, Phantom Limb, on a whim shortly thereafter. It took only three days and one microphone to get the stripped down guitar-drum duo recorded. Phantom Limb is folk-rock that sometimes sounds a bit like Crazy Horse (“Short Hair”, “Whoa Back”). There is also a quiet, pastoral feel on other tracks (“Low and Long” “On the Day” and the hidden track #10. Might it be called “Cold Hearted Woman”?) Most interesting, though, is the solemn folk-hymn mash-up “It Is Well With My Soul”. Rebecca Ruth
