After the schizophrenic range of 2010's Sisterworld‚ this year's WIXIW sounded medicated and sedated by comparison. But "Brats‚" the album's penultimate track‚ offers a gratifying boost of adrenaline for those patient enough to stick around through the album's alienating A side. "Brats" is brought to life by a doomy‚ rave ready beat that channels Liars' chaotic tendencies into something you can dance to. Far and away the best of the indie rock outfit's electronic experiments‚ "Brats" is less a hint at what could have been‚ and more a snapshot of what was‚ if only for three sweaty‚ glow stick waving minutes.
