The High Llamas - Here Come The Rattling Trees
Melodiously receptive ears rejoice! The High Llamas, the best in the game at warmly wonderous pop song, arrangement and harmony, return with a new album! With witty, artful musical strokes, Sean and the High Llamas have crafted deft musical sketches with the signature 'Llamas' sound that has evolved over ten album releases since 1992. A colourful array of electric, acoustic, and synthetic instruments, alongside Sean O'Hagan's gentled vocals, are deployed to transport the listener to the low-key highs and lows of the British working week - an incisive, sympathetic view to the wonders slipped in between the pages and too often passed over in everyday life.
