Guitar-driven six-piece Band of Liars perform like a well-oiled machine and singer Rae Rae (though a bit screechy at times) certainly brings a strong, confident attitude to the mic. “Shoulda Known Better,” a slice of modern country rock, is typical of the band’s catchy, relatable material. Like all the tunes here, it carves out ample space for some tasty lead guitar. “Drunk Drunk” is a down-and-dirty party anthem with a twangy, southern-rock sneer. Most memorable, however, is “Sleeping Like a Queen” whose folkish, stripped-down arrangement allows Rae Rae to gloat “I’m sleeping like a queen in a king-size bed,” about feeling great after ending a bad relationship. These Liars show true potential.
