Great new music… Lay Llamas

LL

This coming Friday (June 15th), Italian psychedelic rockers, Lay Llamas, release their second album, Thuban.

Their first album, Ostro, was released back in 2014 and is packed with lots of krautrock influenced psychedelia, afrobeat rhythms and hypnotic otherworldliness. There are obvious current touchstones like King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, Goat, The Limiñanas and Clinic, but there’s something a little bit different to their sound too, an astral and wide-eyed aura that sucks in lots of influences but never sounds copy cat. There’s a masterful blend of spacey psych jams, trippy mellow moments and hooky motorik grooves, and that little bit of magic that hooked me in as soon as I heard them.

With the recent success of Aussie psychedelic acts in the shapes of Tame Impala, KGATLW, Pond and Jagwar Ma, and the rise of psychedelic festivals across Europe, it’s a bit of a surprise their debut album didn’t get a wider audience. Hopefully their sophomore release will change all that.

Ahead of the album’s release, three of Thuban’s eight tracks have recently seen the light of day on both Youtube and Spotify. Check out, Holy Worms, Altair and Silver Sun below:
