The Lillingtons and Enemy You have a history that goes back a quarter of a century. You won’t find that in today’s punk scene where there’s so much competition and grubbing for clout on social media, but these bands are binary stars from a bygone era. The two respective singers started out as pen pals (yes, using actual letters and stamps!) and went on to be songwriting contemporaries and labelmates on Lookout and Red Scare. In the world of melodic punk, The Lillingtons and Enemy You are the gold standard. Then David Jones (singer of Enemy You) suddenly passed away in 2015 and bands have been paying him tribute ever since. On “Can Anybody Hear Me” we have The Lillingtons offering up a few EY cover songs and it feels like a family reunion. The first pressing of the vinyl will come on “Jones Hoodie Red” and a portion of proceeds will be donated towards to National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.

Hell yeah!!! The songwriting, the energy. I freaking love this album. Hell, I think I've bought it 3 times now? 2 CDs and 1 digital. The pizza lady was stoked when I gave her a copy lol. Thanks for the awesomeness! -Richard Dee Vine (YouTube Moksha PlayList) Songwriter from Niacin Library-AZ Richard Dee Vine

Sure, it's no Oh Calcutta, but who cares? Making something this good after decades of writing is a feat in its own right. That, plus, Coyote Crown probably -is- the best TLA closing track of them all, or at least it's my favorite. Not biased or anything. Now fingers are crossed for some new Falcon or Sundowner tracks.
