Ako Recommends The High Llamas - "Buzzle Bee"

Drag City recently posted a review written from OTW advocate, Ako of The Blackouts in his recommendation of The High Llamas' latest release, "Buzzle Bee."

In Ako's words:

"I just went to Pitchfork Fest and one of my favorite performances of the weekend was Brad Truax and Noah Lennox singing High Llamas to me when I told them about writing this review. The High Llamas have always been one of my favorite bands. I'm a skateboarder and when I first heard them I was jamming a lot of DMX and sleep. Head banger jams, which to me is the same as the Llamas. Layers of sounds and a no rules vibe. Buzzle Bee is up there as one of the best Llamas record. The vocals, keys, bass, drums, vibraphone and alot of instruments I don't even know. What I like about it is the way the vocals blend so tightly with the instruments and it feels like one sound, almost as a instrumental album. "Switch Pavilion" is my favorite song. I think Laetitia Sadier sings on it. Buzzle Bee is a solid classic, warm feel good album all together. Grab a beer and put this on, and you won't be bummed..."
