Lilys – ‘High Writer At Home’

eccsame-lilys

To celebrate the 21st anniversary of their classic 1994 album ‘Eccsame The Photon Band‘, Lilys have re-issued the LP, played some reunion shows, and posted a new video for ‘High Writer At Home’! There’s a whole lot of people feeling very old right now! *myself included* Lilys second record is considered a classic amongst shoegaze lovers, it’s abstract, moody and gets under your skin. The Washington veterans are led by Kurt Heasley, with an ever-changing line-up of more than seventy past members, but who’s counting!? The video (directed by Stephen “ESPO” Powers and Joey Garfield) has footage from the ‘A Love Letter For You’ doco. Grab the vinyl here or here.

Arc In Round – ‘The Turtle Which Died Before Knowing’ (Lilys Cover)

ARC IN ROUND - 'ARC IN ROUND'

Arc In Round may be on hiatus but reminded fans this week of a recent upload covering The Lilys ‘The Turtle Which Died Before Knowing’ (free download). The Philly shoegazers do a wonderful job, not surprising given the strength of their 2012 LP (which this cover does not appear on). The track was originally released on the Lilys 1994 record ‘Eccsame The Photon Band’. Listen to the original at Youtube. I hope Arc In Round’s hibernation doesn’t last much longer.
