They Were Wrong So We Drowned (2004)

Details Release Date: Feb 24, 2004; Lead Performance: Liars

To escape the pigeonholing restraints applied by the hipster community, Brooklyn's Liars have receded from the arty, groovy headbanger funk of their well-received debut, 2002's ''They Threw Us All in a Trench and Stuck a Monument on Top.'' Here, the trio defiantly cranks out warped hard noise: Angus Andrew's ritualistic intonations loom over bloodthirsty euphony and deep-sea sonar pulses that resonate to create a disoriented, trancelike feel. Fewer thrills, more chills.
