I cannot stop watching this video from Show Me Shows of Water Liars playing the absolutely heartbreaking ‘Linens’ in an empty theater. It’s almost painfully personal from start to finish, from the conversation Andrew Bryant has at the beginning while Justin Kinkel-Schuster plucks out a bittersweet verse, to the performance of ‘Linens,’ to the short story Justin tells at the very end about his disdain for school as a child- it feels like we are seeing something we shouldn’t be, as though we should turn it off and close the computer and not take it all in. It is raw, honest and beautiful, much like the song it was created for, and much like all of the music Water Liars makes.
Water Liars released Wyoming in March. Enjoy.
