Excellent terrific ear candy

Danl

Track down 1994's A Brief History of Amazing Letdowns. A towering classic of American Shoegazing: complex droning chords, murky vocals, noise. Simply brilliant.

Ear Candy as Always...

JeffJeffie

I won't bother you with long descriptions as I think everything Kurt Heasley releases is golden... No objectivity in my review if you catch my drift... Like finding a heavy wad of cash in your pockets that you totally forgot about..

Excellent

Frankly, I've always found Lilys to be hit and miss. I either love the album or am indifferent. This is definitely in the love category. The quintessential tidal waves of guitars are here, within a seemingly more realized pop effort. Very nice.

Terrific (after repeat listens)

This album takes a few listens but once you've gotten used to what's on the surface you really start to notice what's going on underneath. Stand outs include "With Candy" and "Everything Wrong is Imaginary" which sounds like Nine Inch Nails meets Air. This is a very diverse album with lots of genres explored. I'm now officially a Lilys fan!

Behold the Shoes: A Brief History of Shoegaze

By Douglas Wolk, Contributor

No, it's not a great name: "shoegazing." Very few artists who've actually played in that style like the term; Stuart Braithwaite of Mogwai has called it "a dumb term made up by clueless... idiots... if someone called us shoegazers, I'd be pretty unhappy." The other leading candidate seems to be "dreampop," which is also not quite satisfactory. But we're stuck with those words, because it's undeniable that there's a certain tendency in rock music, especially British… more »

They Say All Music Guide

They say that turmoil can help fuel an artist to come up with inspired work, and that may very well be the case for the longtime leader of Lilys, Kurt Heasley. Experiencing upheaval in his personal life, Heasley had to put his family ahead of finishing off the recording of Lilys’ eight release overall, Everything Wrong Is Imaginary. But Heasley came up with a plan — instead of spending long amounts of time in the studio, he was able to get the job done at home. Putting his vocals and guitar parts down on tape at his own studio, the tracks were then sent to producer Michael Musmanno (best known for working with hip-hop acts like OutKast), who filled in the missing spaces with various studio musicians. What you get is another quirky and eclectic Lilys set, which includes everything from laid-back funk (“A Diana’s Diana”) to up-tempo ditties that sound quite comparable to the Eels at times (the album opening “Black Carpet Magic”). Although Lilys is often thought of as a “one-man band,” Heasley appears to have found a worthy partner in crime with Musmanno, as evidenced by their collaborative work on Everything Wrong Is Imaginary. – Greg Prato
