Lay Llamas have just revealed the video for 'Altair', the third track to be released from forthcoming album 'Thuban'.
A four minute psych-tropicalia excursion featuring lead vocals by Goatshee, one of the the enigmatic singers from label mates GOAT. The track centres around an addictive percussive groove and heavily fuzzed guitars that create a psychedelic pop mantra in the vein of the Brazilian band Os Mutantes:

'Thuban' is released on 15 June and the album features contributions from the aforementioned GOAT, plus The Pop Group's Mark Stewart and Clinic. The 8 track album album is the brainchild of Nicola Giunta, and involved as many of twelve different musicians yet with Nicola writing lyrics, singing, producing, mixing and recording at his home, whilst utilising new instruments from marimba to sax to kalimba to pilot this craft to dimensions unknown. The result has been a step beyond the kraut-damaged psychedelic mantras of 'Østro' into a realm seemingly without boundaries, one in which a pan-global fascination with rhythmic hypnosis and an unquenchable experimental zeal manifests hermetically-aligned revelations aplenty.
