Here Come The Rattling Trees Reviews.......
'' Where ever the High Llamas live in their minds , can we move there, please?''
''The music of true mavericks''
''...featuring some of the groups most unabashedly pop moments ...''
'' inspired baroque pop from sunny California to Peckham High Street.''
.... ''ambitious and exciting instalment in the history of a band who may be happy (or possibly even destined) to remain under the radar but deserve something far, far greater.''
''The lovely "Jackie" leavens the melancholy of the cafe worker’s rather drab day-to-day existence with a bouncy, harpsichord-driven swing and an impeccable chorus, and the title track recalls the early solo efforts of Paul McCartney with bulbous bass tones and electric piano.''
A Pessimist Is Never Disappointed
''The High Llamas have prepped what is one of their most lovely releases.''...
'Like other groups with such a unique and defined sound, The High Llamas are masters at crafting little moments that bridge the past (a Beach Boys-like sense of a good tune) and the future (the rough-and-retro futurism of their mates in Stereolab). ''
Louder Than War
'' The title track is the strongest one (the chorus will stick in your head for days) but vignettes like “McKain James” show that Sean O’Hagan’s songwriting skills still have a lot to offer. Hopefully their will be enough buyers of the new album to enable the band to put on another run of the stage production.''
