Music Spotlight #4—Lily Taylor

Who is Lily Taylor?

She is an avant chanteuse who is currently based in Dallas by way of San Francisco, Santa Fe, Denton, Austin, and Boston.

What is her sound?

“Angelic and visceral vocal-driven avant pop” is how indie music magazine Impose describes it. Listen (and see) for yourself in this video collaboration with filmmaker Melissa Cha.

Check out Lily's latest album on Bandcamp.

What is Lily's favorite soundtrack?

“I love many soundtracks, so choosing one is difficult. I enjoy the synthy sounds of Beyond the Black Rainbow because it invokes a nostalgia for the WGBH TV shows of my youth like Nova, The Bloodhound Gang, and Dr. Who.”

What is on Lily's playlist?

“Recently, I’ve been listening to a lot of Def Rain. We are on the same label (Pour le Corps), that’s how I found out about her. I can’t stop listening to this album.”
