The High Llamas - Can Cladders (2007)

After Microdisney's demise, in 1988, Cathal Coughlan went on with The Fatima Mansions while Sean O'Hagan formed an amazing group called The High Llamas, after releasing one solo album (intitled "High Llamas").
These are the eight albums the band has released to date.
They are all five star records, although "Hawaii" and "Santa Barbara" may be, possibly, my favourite ones.
Don't miss it!

...The High Llamas' output shows influences including pre-1950s American pop and folk, Brazilian jazz and bossa nova, film composers of the 1960s, and 1990s European electronic music, (...) most frequently includes references to Brian Wilson's psychedelic period and/or kitsch lounge revival.
