-Lilly Wave, ‘Western Wars’

Lilly Wave, a Pulsewidthmod side project that’s a bit more synthpop proper than the Krautrock-ian sturm und drang bleep-bloop she usually delivers, offers up righteous rage, dodgy didactism, and blunt, necessary naivete. ‘Western Wars’ casts Noam Chomsky as a shoegaze siren telling us that “these wars will never end unless we take a stand” and invoking “terrorists wearing suits and ties.” Simple sloganeering works here especially because we have the nuance of previous work such as 2015’s “#fearwillkeepthelocalsinline” and the ornate electronics which accumulate like micro-aggressions, and news of police killings on your Twitter timeline.
