Text excerpt by  Winston Cook-Wilson, via the label:

"[...] Since its inception, Lily has yielded an interconnected network of releases that function as a kind of personal musical lexicon for Lovell. Operating out of his home, Lily specializes in hand-assembled cassettes that frequently feature Lovell's own art or design, and its discography includes everything from electroacoustic collages, experimental and country, to emo-informed indie rock. However, the lovingly curated anniversary compilation Window: 10 Years of Lily Tapes & Discs reveals a curious kind of aesthetic unity to Lily's disparate crew of alums. The near- two-hour long compendium features new and unreleased material from nearly everyone who has released music on Lily—including Adeline Hotel, Jason Calhoun, The National Park Service, Michael Cormier-O'Leary, and Lovell himself—coalescing into a dream-like, immersive longform listening experience.

Rather accepting a specific release based on its suitability for some kind of label house sound, Lovell has always viewed Lily as a platform for friends to showcase whatever mode they were working in at the time. (This could be anything from a labor-of- love full-length, a smaller split release, or a stray experiment outside of their normal wheelhouse.) With Window, then, Lovell wanted to see where each member of LT&D's roster has ended up artistically in 2023, instead of providing a scrapbook of their past work on the label. By his own account, Lily has always been a way for Lovell to connect with people he respected and got along with on a deeper level; therefore, it was also an excuse to catch up with collaborators he hadn't talked to in years.

Many Lily Tapes & Discs sound releases like happening into the middle of a private musical conversation, or observing a ritual that has been going unobserved for some time. Lovell's recordings on the compilation as Lung Cycles exemplify this feeling—patiently sketching a restless chord progression over rustling natural sounds in “Field” and luxuriating in distortion and percolating synth harmonies on “Asbury.” On his contributions, Philly-based ambient music vet Jason Calhoun thrusts us into a vortex of downsampled noise, with shards of melody sporadically cutting through. Reminiscent of the serrated sounds of Low and William Basinski, Cla-ras' “C is for Cricket”—the handiwork of Jeremy Ferris, an illustrator and printmaker who has helped define Lily's visual language—compellingly draws attention to its means of production. Wind shudders into a mic; synths and samples accumulate speed and density, culminating in patches of blown-out static that cause the entire track to short out[...]"
