High Llamas

The High Llamas' lovely new album, Here Come the Rattling Trees, was released last week via Drag City. Like all their work: it's a pastoral stroll through provincial landscapes, orchestrated by harpsichords, nylon-stringed guitars, xylophones, and the signature harmonies and string/brass arrangements of main man Sean O'Hagan. It all goes down like a perfectly brewed cup of tea. They've just released a video for "McKain James" which was directed by Magik Markers' Elisa Ambrogio who creates a playfully perfect stop-motion visual accompaniment for the song. You can watch that below.
