Liechtenstein Survival Strategies in a Modern World
- Words: Shawn Reynaldo
- Label: Slumberland
- XLR8R Rating: 8.5/10
Did Slumberland make some kind of pact with the devil? How do they keep unearthing one amazing indie-pop band after another? They've already got The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Crystal Stilts, and Cause Co-Motion!—now you can add Swedish all-girl trio Liechtenstein to the list. While youngsters might cite a resemblance to Vivian Girls, Survival Strategies in a Modern World sounds a lot more like the fuzzed-out efforts of early '80s bands like Kleenex/LiLiPUT and The Au Pairs. Sporting reverb-soaked vocal melodies, bouncy post-punk basslines, and sticky pop songs that usually clock in under three minutes each, Liechtenstein may be serving up indie nostalgia, but there's no shame in asking for seconds.
