Today, quirky pop darlings The Daylilies drop their first full-length album “From America. . .” with ten songs of dystopian panic you can dance to. The accompanying single and video ‘Ode to TV’ is a sardonic take on our obsession with screen time, especially when we are the ones onscreen. The album itself turns disillusionment into a gorgeous soundscape, with Laura England Klain’s distinctive vocals front and center spinning dew-strung webs of loss and redemption. Mixed and mastered by the mighty Mike Quinn, the sounds are lush and arresting.
“Remember when rock was weird? Not weird and self-important like Radiohead or Muse, but legit weird like Talking Heads at CBGBs or the B-52’s at an Athens house party or Mission of Burma at the Rat. You do! Great, so do the Daylilies.” Jed Gottlieb, The Boston Herald
