The High Llamas are an Anglo-Irish avant-pop band formed in London circa 1991. They were founded by singer-songwriter Sean O'Hagan, formerly of Microdisney, with drummer Rob Allum and ex-Microdisney bassist Jon Fell. O'Hagan has led the group since its formation. Their music is often compared to the Beach Boys, who he acknowledges as an influence, although more prominent influences were drawn from bossa nova and European film soundtracks.
Album · 2011 · 12 Songs. For his band’s ninth album, he’ll pitch a John Barry harmonica into the rustic A Rock In May, or throw sharp trumpet blasts into Wander, Jack Wander to create a sense of dramatic geography. To the Abbey turns up the wonder, pushing its melodic face into a bed of sparkling harp, while Angel Connector uses bubbling synths to offer a glimpse of the future. Talahomi Way The High Llamas.
Talahomi Way is O’Hagan’s easy listening album. It features bossa nova beats, airy woodwinds and strings that evoke Nelson Riddle as much as anything by Parks. The album is a beaut. If anyone has a right to the music of the Mad Men era, it’s a careful scholar like O’Hagan, who with Microdisney, Stereolab and the High Llamas has explored this terrain with authority. Woven and Rolled has a horn section adding brightness to this mix of acoustic guitars, strings and halting beats. The Ring of Gold strolls past with a spring breeze that reminds one of the glories of stereophonic recordings
Album Talahomi Way. Talahomi Way Lyrics. By the time the bus pulls in After travelling for a day, a night A harbour full of ships yet to set sail. The bags have hit the ground In the lobby of a small hotel Beneath a lemon lilac netted veil. Talahomi Way" Track Info. Written By Sean O'Hagan. Release Date April 19, 2011.
In Talahomi Way The High Llamas have produced another album far greater than the sum of its component parts. Talahomi Way's details can speak louder than its actual songs, but this isn't a criticism: here, O'Hagan and crew use those details to make an album that is equally pastoral and meticulous, and listening to it is like visiting a perfectly arranged topiary garden.
