Soccer Mom – “Ginger” (Lilys Cover)


Here’s a highlight from a recent covers compilation of early Lilys stuff curated by Clicky Clicky Music blog.  Boston based noise rockers, Soccer Mom chose “Ginger”, the opening track of Lilys’ 1994 EP, A Brief History of Amazing Letdowns.  They offer a faithful rendition, bringing out the more shoegaze side of Lilys while suppressing slightly the dreaminess of Kurt Heasly’s original vocals in favor of a low baritone doubled with octave female vocals which gives a slightly different ring to “she comes and she goes but she mostly goes”.  The rest of the compilation is available here.
