“The expedition continues on Llama-back, as they continue deeper into their exotic world of sound. The new naturalism breathes with life — a city of the future is borne to your ears’ delight!”

“A good start [to listening to their catalogue] is near the beginning with HAWAII (a full two hours of music) but this song has always been one of my favorites, from TALAHOMI WAY: ‘Ring of Gold,’ [which is] about a racehorse put out to pasture.” — George Raymond, fan and author of TREFOLOGY Blog

“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, a band he acknowledges as an influence, although more prominent influences were drawn from bossa nova and European film soundtracks.” — Wikipedia
