Into Shoegaze? The Lilys’ 1992 debut In The Presence of Nothing should be sacrosanct to you already. What? you’re not familiar with this band or their seminal album? A Pessimist is Never Disappointed has a great post about the context and importance of The Lilys’ In The Presence of Nothing in the larger context of the works that came after. It’s a great read.
I think the band’s other claim-to-fame might be the number of pervious band members listed on Wikipedia. It tops out at 49.
In The Presence of Nothing by Lilys is out now via Frontier Records. You can stream the rerelease below.
The Lilys are playing The Chapel in San Francisco on February 2nd.
