Even before she became a fixture of the New York underground, Lily Konigsberg was staking out her place in local music. – Pitchfork [Rising Artist, 2020]
The freewheeling, flitting melodies underline the precision of Konigsberg’s songwriting: She knows what she wants to say and she is methodical about how much to reveal. – Pitchfork [It’s Just Like All The Clouds Review (7.8)]
a crisp, catchy, and concise bit of ’90s-indebted indie rock – Stereogum
warm and direct but tough to grasp, untraceable – Tiny Mix Tapes

A musical omnibus, The Best of Lily Konigsberg Right Now is the first widely distributed Lily Konigsberg physical release as well as the first vinyl treatment for both Good Time Now and 4 Picture Tear. The collection loosely parallels the melancholic narrative behind the latter, where a mental break triggered Konigsberg’s depersonalized sense of her past self. Of the 4 Picture Tear EP Konigsberg says, “I would look at this photo booth picture I took with Matt [Norman] and cry because I thought I was looking at the person I used to be in that picture and that that person was gone.” In retrospect, these three EPs feel like distinctive vignettes of Konigsberg’s progression as a songwriter, each version of her past self tethered by an invisible thread to the present through musical alliances and fervent
introspection. “Owe Me,” a song Konigsberg never felt fit on any of her previous releases, now serves as an opening curtain call. “Thank you all for coming to my show,” Konigsberg says to an invisible audience’s applause, “If you didn’t know, now you certainly know.” It’s a transportive moment that combines Konigsberg’s patient steps into the underground pop limelight with her exceptional ability to connect with a diverse and talented cohort of creatives.

About Lily Konigsberg
One third of egalitarian art-punk outfit Palberta, the Brooklyn-born and-based Lily Konigsberg has occupied her time with music since her early childhood. “Basically I was born and immediately started wanting to be a rock star,” Konigsberg told Pitchfork in July of last year (She was 2020 Pitchfork Rising Artist).
