Do bands have to pay extra for the psychedelic/swirly light show?
ROB SEZ: I'm told Lilys tried to be an American shoegazer / dream pop band in an early incarnation. This live set suggests they've returned to shoe-gazing for their predominant style. Feel free to call it what you like. But if you're into moody, guitar-heavy, densely melodic songs with curious lyrics, Lilys might be your new groove. Check the sample, get the download, and enjoy. Big thanks & kudos to Jim M. for recording & sharing. There's more here; you just have to poke around to find it...

  2. Happy to see you embracing Lilys!

    1. Well, they're honestly a rough fit for me. At times, a bit too "out there" for my musical tastes. That said, I can't deny Kurt has written some enjoyably compelling music over the years...
