Liechtenstein coming to the US!
In the wake of their appearance at this year's NYC Popfest, Liechtenstein will be doing a small East coast tour, as well!!! Lucky for me, I might be seeing them three times! Luckier for me, The Sugarplums will be playing with them in Baltimore on the 17th!
Their debut LP 'Survival Strategies In A Modern World' will be out May 26 on Sweden's Fraction Discs and on June 9 on Slumberland Records. Can I just say – Slumberland is kicking ass in 2009! I can't wait to get my hands on it – it's going to an absolute smash! For proof of JUST how smashing it's gonna be, listen to "Roses In The Park". It's a bit more masculin than their previous single "Apathy", but only proves how versatile Liechtenstein can be within their relatively tight range of influences. Reminds me of a slightly less bombastic Flatmates tune. Liechtenstein really are today's shining example of fuzzy simplicity!
As far as the tour goes, I would suggest making out to as many of these shows as you can, as Liechtenstein are certainly not to be missed. I've heard wonderful fantastic things about their live shows and personally I can't wait to witness all those harmonies in person!
