Rampant gentrification, barefoot hippies, and weekend crowds: There's a lot to dislike about Newtown. But for all the inner western Sydney suburb's flaws, gems remain tucked among the Thai food and craft beer joints and stuff they cover in inflight-magazine guides.
Angus Andrew who is LIARS, recently returned to Australia after living in Berlin. He settled in remote NSW to record TFCF, his eighth studio album. But when back in the big smoke recently he hooked up with kraut-pop duo MEZKO. Kat and Laura cite Angus and LIARS to be a big influence in their sound and so were happy to show the big guy around the streets of Newtown.
