Default The Lilys

Lilys, led by singer/songwriter Kurt Heasley, are a notoriously difficult band to categorize. With an ever-evolving lineup, home base, and a sound that swings pendulum-like between My Bloody Valentine-influenced shoegazer and indie guitar pop. One of my favorite bands atm and I had finally gotten everything they have released. I had found that they were very easy to just jump into and I had listened to "Better Can't Make Your life Better" (which was heavily influenced by the Kinks) more times then I could count...probably the easiest album to start with.


EDIT:I had gotten "Everything Wrong Is Imaginary" awhile back and I really shouldn't have started this thread because my knowledge on the Lilys was lacking a bit.

I only really know "In the Presence of Nothing"... very My Bloody Valentine-ish. I think I heard "Eccsame the Photon Band" but wasn't too excited by it.

Any recommendations?

Ok I'm resurrecting this thread because I had written a terrible description and have replaced it with a new one.

Precollection is my favourite by them.

They're pretty great, very chameleonic with their sound.

I finally got to chat up Kurt Heasley, even if it was about a t-shirt I was supposed to get. He's one of the nicest musicians I've had the pleasure of talking to.
