We covered Brooklyn musician Lily Konigsberg's music before, since she is involved with art punk (bordering on no wave) trio Palberta. However, considering that band's strictly electric/percussive sound, we hadn't realized Lily had released several solo electronic records. In 2016 she released two records outside Palberta, one uder the moniker Lily and the Horn Horse and the 'kawai that claps' EP under her own name. The former is a collaboration with Matt Norman (aka Horn Horse), and sounds like an eccentric pastiche of jazz and DIY experimental madness. The solo EP, on the other hand, abandons the extreme edges of her previous discography for a poppier approach, although without betraying her signature quirkiness and DIY approach. The record also introduces us to the gentle version of her voice, something miles apart from Palberta's grunts, and to a songwriter with a noteworthy talent for catchy melodies. You can check out Lily's avant pop at Union Pool on April 5th.
