Released on the Ropeadope label, this digital-only release has been ringing in our ears for a good few weeks now. Instead of listening to the album once and drawing our opinions from it, we found that each time we skipped back and forth through the nine-track record entitled …That City Is A Liar, we'd find something else that our ears previously hadn’t picked up. Many layers of beautifully woven melodies come creeping in and out at various points of the record, always making you want to listen that little bit closer to see if any more nuggets of joy can be found.
Songs on this record deserve to be heard by more people then the small community of fans that Sketches For Albinos has at the moment. Like a fine piece of literature, …That City Is A Liar should be shared and passed onto as many people as possible. Its sheer warmth and beauty will move anyone who has ever had a flicker of emotion.
