Lilys have been reissuing much of their '90s catalog on vinyl. We got In The Presence Of Nothing and Eccsame the Photon Band a few years ago, and this year saw A Brief History Of Amazing Letdowns and The 3-Way get repressed. To complete the collection,1996's Better Can't Make Your Life Better, is getting a vinyl reissue on December 10 via Sundazed.
Better Can't Make Your Life Better was originally released via Elektra Records subsidiary Primary Recordings and found Lilys shifting from the sludgy/shoegazy sound of their indie label albums into more of a jangly '60s psych-pop / British Invasion vibe akin to The Kinks, The Monkees and The Creation. The album also gave Lilys a belated UK Top 20 hit with "Nanny in Manhattan," after the song was used in a Roman Coppola-directed Levis ad in 1998. More recently, a couple of the album's songs made it onto the soundtrack of AMC series Lodge 49.
