Blood on the Wall ‘Liferz’ (The Social Registry)

Amanda Petrusich // February 20, 2008

p>Back in 2005, Blood on the Wall were elected best local band by drooling New York critics, who championed their adept riff on alternative-rock noise. Liferz, the third LP by the trio (whose members are now scattered across the country), is still packed with references to Pixies and Sonic Youth, but the raw, disaffected guitar noodling and unpredictable vocals — Courtney Shanks’ breathy chants blithely offset brother Brad’s frantic mews — remain fierce enough to get those old Doc Martens quaking.
