1 - LILYS - A BRIEF HISTORY OF AMAZING LETDOWNS - (LP)    UPDATED
FRONTIER


"LILYS classic 1994 10", A Brief History of Amazing Letdowns, has more songs and expanded audio fidelity, creating a longer, more exciting full-frequency listening experience than previously available.A Brief History of Amazing Letdowns is, in places, haunting with an atmospherically delicate sense of melody and musical production for those that love slightly wistful, slightly melancholic songs. A Brief History of Amazing Letdowns is completely unlike any other LILYS album: instantly catchy and concise.These recordings, made in Philadelphia between 1993-4, present what Kurt Heasley, LILYS frontman, founder, and sole constant member, terms as "a maximum listen, that properly represents the transitional phase" between the 1992 Slumberland LILYS debut In the Presence of Nothing and 1995s Eccsame the Photon Band (both reissued by Frontier Records in 2015).The opening guitar riff and drums of "Ginger" became widely recognized in the mid-nineties through use in the notorious CK1 Commercial, as part of Calvin Kleins Unisex fragrance ad campaign, once playing constantly on late night TV in the USA. "Ginger" has even been touted as the first Indie rock song ever used in corporate advertising. "Any Place Ive Lived" is heard during the closing credits of the 2006 film, Keeping Up With the Steins.This 2021 version of A Brief History of Amazing Letdowns (also reissued on Frontier Records) has the previously unreleased track, "G. Cobalt Franklin" which replaces the track "Glosseder" on the original 1994 10" LP, which now sells for upward of $300. The songs "Elsa", "Coby", "Timber" and "Hymn" recorded in 1994 during the demoing process for Eccsame The Photon Band, were shelved, and then quietly released in 2000 as the long-out-of-print Lilys/Aspera Ad Astra split EP."

2 - LILYS - ECCSAME THE PHOTON BAND - (LP) 
FRONTIER


LILYS etheric second full-lenth album, Eccsame The Photon Band, has become a Shoegaze collector's favorite. Out of print for twenty years, the highly sought, rare first edition vinyl is nearly impossible to come by. This 21st anniversary re-release includes original artwork and has an enhanced dynamic range with the reordering of songs. "The Hermit Crab" has been moved and now begins side two, allowing for a deeper cut of side one and therefore increased audio fidelity, creating a more exciting listening experience than previously available. Eccsame The Photon Band has been described as "one of the LILYS' best", "a hallucinatory revelation" and "a masterpiece of mood, atmosphere and production".

3 - LILYS - IN THE PRESENCE OF NOTHING - (LP) 
FRONTIER


Here now are the complete recordings from LILYS 1992 debut album In the Presence of Nothing and the bands 1991 single "February Fourteenth" spread out over two 180 gram vinyl LPs, digitally remastered for the 21st century.A journey that begins in the magical and meditative sonics of MY BLOODY VALENTINE and HUSKER DU, incorporating a curiously wandering sense of melody, finally winding up in a long cinematic corridor of urban industrial textures. The resulting program of amplified watercolors is the first and most important pinnacle of the American Shoegazing Aesthetic.
