WATER LIARS, THE SEE
9:30 p.m. White Water Tavern.
Mississippi duo Water Liars have been road-doggin' it extra hard for the last couple years now. These guys know from cheap coffee and chaffed asses and hangovers and road dust and the other assorted afflictions that vex the traveling musician.
They've played hereabouts a handful of times and I'm betting they've earned some fans with their songs, which are of fine quality and mostly range from wistful to pensive to sweetly sad.
There are some really good tunes and some really nice harmonies on their new album, "Wyoming," out this week on the plucky Big Legal Mess/Fat Possum imprint, which has brought us many enjoyable albums over the years. "Wyoming" is a good record, maybe a bit sadder than their first one, maybe like a less precious/more world-weary Fleet Foxes, if I were forced to make a comparison.
Also performing will be Little Rock's The See. You already know them and love them.
