On my turntable: High Llamas - Talahomi Way

Talahomi Way (2011)
My first encounter with the High Llamas was Hawaii (1996). I'd read about the album and how much it was influenced by The Beach Boys' SMiLE period. I still consider Hawaii to be the Llamas' masterpiece, although Talahomi Way (2011) is a very good record. I've appreciated the band's last few LPs, but this new one seems to be more cohesive and upbeat. It's definitely a great sunny album for spring!
